Little Trackers

Ages: 6-8

June 24-27, 2019

9am to 3pm (Mon-Thurs)

Tracking is more than just footprints; it is the study of movement in nature and involves cultivating a keen awareness of our environment.  Students are encouraged to become still and calm and use all of their senses. 


Each class includes movement, games, observation, and exploration in nature.  Students learn to read the signs of nature like words on the page of a book.  Throughout the week, students visit three different ecosystems near The Mt. Adams Institute campus and learn about when, how, and why animals are moving around.  Students will start to understand the relationships between animals and their environment and the web of life that surrounds them.
