At Trackers Earth we offer adult programs in wilderness survival, archery, bow-making, blacksmithing, tracking, foraging wild edible plants, and more. Our weekend and evening Folk and Forest Craft courses build confidence and common sense in the outdoors. We teach authentic skills of independence and a life connected to community and the land, across all four of our Core Guilds.
PLEASE NOTE: We will not be hosting adult courses from June to August. All of our staff and resources are dedicated to our summer youth programs.
Location of Classes
Our classes are held mostly in local parks and open spaces. Most of our wilderness survival, edible plant, and rangers guild classes are conducted in Marin County and the East Bay. All classes meet on-site, and locations are emailed during the week prior to class.
Locations for off-site classes will be emailed the week before class. Please note precise meeting times for classes on individual class descriptions.

Families are welcome to attend an adult class together. We require that all participants, adults and youth, register and pay for for the class. Please also note that these classes are taught at an adult pace and level. Parents are responsible for primary supervision of their children during adult classes.
