Bear Tracks Outdoor Adventure Program

Youth in our communities are always eager to get outside and explore the outdoors. The Bear Tracks program encourages healthy active lifestyles centered around challenging and rewarding outdoor activities.

Promoting health, conservation, and stewardship.

One of the primary goals of our Bear Tracks program is to get our youth outside to experience all the health benefits that nature can offer, from a more active lifestyle to a decrease in chronic health issues like obesity and diabetes.

At the same time, we want Bear Tracks participants to come out of the program with a strong foundation in the principles of environmental responsibility so they can be active lifelong stewards of our precious natural resources.

  • Mental and Physical Health
  • Environmental Stewardship
  • Challenging and Fun Activities
  • Leave No Trace Principles

Join us on an outdoor adventure!

Join us for a Bear Tracks expedition or activity and expand your horizons while learning the principles of environmental conservation that will make you a lifelong steward of our planet.

Our Bear Tracks Program runs throughout the year, but primarily from Spring through Fall.
