Through master storytelling, song and experiential learning, Jon Young will  awaken nature’s healing connection within individuals and entire communities. 

Jon Young is the author of What the Robin Knows–How Birds Reveal the Secrets of the Natural World, The Kamana Naturalist Training Program, Animal Tracking Basics and Coyote’s Guide To Connecting with Nature. Jon’s story begins while hunting snapping turtles in the suburbs of New Jersey as a boy. Following his curiosity where few would dare, he discovered a map to our ancient biology that unlocks deep nature connection. He has, in short, blazed a trail into the heart of what it means to be human. Richard Louv, author of Last Child in the Woods, calls Jon’s work “good medicine for nature-deficit disorder”. Through master storytelling, song and experiential learning, Jon awakens nature’s healing connection within individuals and entire communities.
