Wolf Howl Canoe Trip and Wolf Tracking in Algonquin Park

This is an interview I did talking about the Wolf Howl Canoe Trips in Algonquin Park. It also deals with wolf and animal tracking in general. We visit a very beautiful part of the park for these trips and one that is a little less travelled as well. For more information on these canoe trips you can visit my website at or where you can find all of the registration and logistical information. Tracking is such a passion of mine! Following and learning from and about these animals can be so rewarding and serves as a way that we can strive to protect them and thier environment. By understanding what role these animals play in maintaining a balanced eco-system we can be better suited to making decisions that not only affect us, but also the future generations.

I hope you all had a wonderful and joyous holiday season. I look forward to seeing you and making new friendships in the new year.

Happy Tracking

Bow Drill Firemaking Method

This is the Bow Drill Fire method. Different woods and techniques can make obtaining fire easier or harder. The principles and methods remain the same. It never ceases to amaze me --- The beauty of working with FIRE!

Earth Tracks Update

Hello Everyone

I hope you are all enjoying the beautiful winter weather! I sure love this time of year and the 'feelings' that come with it. Solitude, introspection, wisdom and a time to look within. It can be a very powerful time of year with many changes both internally as well as externally. Remember to take time to look at the last year and where you've come from and where this journey is taking you. It can help to ground you on your path and provide focus for the coming year.

With that said, I'd like to let you know that I am in the process of developing a schedule for next year of many new and exciting programs that will be offered in central and southern Ontario. I will be continuing to guide wilderness canoe trips into Algonquin park for Northern Edge Algonquin as well as running some workshops/classes at thier beautiful eco-lodge located near South River. In conjuction to this Earth Tracks will be holding classes near the Orangeville and London areas throughout the next 4 seasons. I am currently working on setting up a website which will be available by Christmas of this year and will have lots of information about classes as well as some cool tracking and naturalist resources along with photographs etc... The website will be I'll be sending out an email to everyone on the email list as soon as it is up and running. Please feel free to get in touch with me directly to be put on the list or with any further questions you may have. It is an exciting time right now and I am really looking forward to the coming year. Some of the classes that will be offered include: Wildlife Tracking, Naturalist Training, Wild Edibles, Medicinal Plants, Salve and Tincture making, Wilderness Survival, etc... I wish you all the best this winter and look forward to seeing you at one of our upcoming programs.

In Light
