Nature Education Program - Awareness Skills

  • Splatter Vision: Technique that will help you see more as you encounter the natural world
  • Owl Hearing: Helps that bird find food in the dark. Learn to enhance your listening skills.
  • Fox Walking: The way to move more quietly through the Natural World increasing the probability that you will encounter more wildlife.
  • Sit: Do a "sit" and learn to use all your senses while absorbing what is going on around you.
  • Awareness Walk: A fun exercise where students walk a path "planted" with artifacts that may or may not belong in the Natural World.

Led by skilled wilderness tracker and instructor, Ron Nosek.  Intrigued by animals and the signs that they leave upon the earth—from clear prints to scat to skulls—Ron has a penchant for teaching others about those critters.  Ron is a former attorney (retired after 29 years of criminal trial work) who for many years did two wilderness trips a year just to keep his head in the right place.  He has recently recounted a number of his outdoor experiences in a collection of essays published as Natural Selections.

Ideal for scout troops, school and church groups, families, and anyone with a love for nature.
