“Thanks to the creators of Coyote’s Guide, teachers, mentors and parents now have a powerful set of tools to help them with their task… This is good medicine for nature-deficit disorder.”
-Richard Louv, author of national bestseller Last Child in the Woods: Saving Our Children from Nature Deficit Disorder
Coyote’s Guide reveals the strategy inside the mind of the “coyote mentor” and offers dozens of activities, so you can easily design amazing learning experiences that fit your plan, your people, and your place. It sets fresh standards for environmental literacy that engages body, mind, and spirit.
If you feel deeply the value of direct experience with nature in your own life and want to transmit it to others, Coyote’s Guide is for you.
Some of you were fortunate to grow up free to roam in the woods – building tree houses in the wild places near your home with parents and mentors who encouraged you – and you want to pass on the tradition. Or you may be a member of the first generation that didn’t have that privilege – and you want to resurrect the tradition. All of us can use the ideas, perspective, inspiration and examples in Coyote’s Guide to help strong nature connections again flourish in our communities.
