Upcoming Animal Tracking and Wilderness Awareness Class – August 24th 2013

“For 99 percent of the time  we’ve been on Earth, we were hunter and gatherers, our lives dependent on  knowing the fine, small details of our world.   Deep inside, we still have a longing to be reconnected with the nature  that shaped our imagination, our language, our song and dance, our sense of the  divine.  – Janine M. Benyus
