About the Course

When Making Tracks started we had classes for kids ages 7-18 but the whole family was welcome to come. After pausing at the beginning of the pandemic, we are ready to bring these programs back.

We will meet the fourth Friday of every month for two and a half hours for games, skills, and social bonding. We want every member of the family to be able to enjoy nature and learn how to thrive in it.

Have a skill you have always wanted to learn? Request it, and let's have some fun!

Meet Your Instructor

At just 7 years old, Erik began training at the Riekes Center Nature Awareness Department. His curiosity was insatiable and he continued to pursue outdoor education, acquiring a Bachelor's degree in Parks, Recreation and Tourism, with an emphasis in Adventure and Outdoor Programs. Since middle school, Erik has channeled his love of nature into teaching, first assisting lead instructors until he was of age to facilitate nature exploration classes for 20+ kids.

Additional Information


We will be meeting at the tollbooth by the reservoir and walking in.


We are always open to feedback and we believe in students creating their own education. If you ever want to learn a skill, let's talk about it and we can make it happen.


Classes will not be held in December. The group can decide whether to meet for the late November gathering.
