Who We Are
The New England Trackers group was formed in 2003 to provide a gathering place for individuals with an interest in the natural world. We are dedicated to cultivating awareness and a deep appreciation for nature. We share and practice the skills that our ancestors used to survive in the world, a kind of ‘primitive technology’ that allowed them to live in balance and harmony with their environment, rather than dominate it.
Many of our members have taken courses taught by Tom Brown, Jr. and the Tracker School, but this is not a requirement for membership.
Our active membership currently includes all of New England and several far away places.
How New England Trackers Works
New England Trackers depends on individual members to initiate and sponsor meetings. The subject of a meeting can be just about anything related to primitive skills. It is even possible to have multiple events on the same day in different parts of New England. To initiate a meeting one need only to post a message to our list to find out if others are interested in working on a particular skill.
Additionally, we have worked with other organizations to bring these skills to others. In the past we have worked the Apeiron Institute, The Greater Hartford Jaycees, and the Mercy Center. It is this type of outreach that sets us apart.
