Are you seeking a personalized, hands-on approach to learning in the wild with a skilled guide? My “Guided Wild Weekends” are unique, curated nature-connection experiences you won’t regret. Each weekend includes 2 days of skill-based, nature immersion in carefully chosen wild locations. Weekend options may include:
- Wildlife Tracking & Trailing – Dive deep into the science and art of detecting, interpreting and, ideally, locating wild animals without disturbance. Most weekends will have focal species (e.g. “Northwoods Tracking & Trailing: Lynx & Moose”)
- Talking with Birds – (aka “Bird Language”) is a way of conducting ourselves with the more-than-human-world combined with dynamic observation techniques to help us decipher nature’s forgotten language.
- The Way of Nature– If you’re looking for a more well-rounded experience, these wknds include an array of valuabe lessons including: wildlife ecology, foraging, wildlife track & sign, talking with birds, trees and shrubs, land-use history and more.
