TRACKS and TRAILS in Dripping Springs
Earth Native's Tracks and Trails program is a twice a month nature education program designed for kids aged 5-12, that is held at Dripping Springs Ranch Park in Dripping Springs, Texas on Mondays.
During this program, students and instructors will explore Dripping Springs Ranch Park and develop skills that will lead to authentic nature connection, deeper knowledge of central Texas plants, animals, and their habitats, awaken sensory awareness, and practice wilderness skills, as a means of build self-confidence and knowledge about the wonderful natural world that surrounds us.
At Earth Native, our unique teaching styles center around a method of teaching called “Coyote Mentoring”, which uses inspiration as the spark that drives learning and grand adventures in nature. These adventures are not only the backdrop for some incredible lessons but are a means to help kids establish lifelong bonds with nature and kindle their natural curiosity about the world outside. We call this “invisible school” because from a kid’s perspective it’s just fun and adventure. Children learn at our programs because they are inspired and curious, not because anyone is telling them they must.
Each class children will explore, hear inspiring stories, practice primitive and wilderness survival skills, play games, and practice our core routines of nature awareness to develop strong skills and knowledge in areas such as:
Edible and Medicinal Plants
Wilderness Survival and Outdoor Skills
Knife Carving & Safety
Natural Arts and Crafts
...and much more!
