The RoversThe Rovers of Trackers are legend to be the most wise in the ways of the forest. They know the signs of the animals, voices of the birds, tales of the trees, and stories of the stars. We believe kids are far more capable than our modern world allows them to be. Our instructors are experts in childhood learning and nature education ready and inspired to help young kids (preschool age) develop confidence and competency with the outdoors.
