Welcome to Earth Skills!
We’re specialists in animal tracking, nature awareness, wilderness survival, plant uses, primitive skills, Native American culture and earth philosophy.
There are many resources available on this site for free download or purchase, as well as information about the many classes we offer in California. We train novices, experienced outdoorspeople, professional field biologists, rangers, teachers and school groups. We also facilitate vision quests and provide nature-based leadership and personal development training.
We welcome you to join us as you connect with nature and advance your outdoor skills!
We hope to see you in a class!
