About Two Coyotes

Welcome to Two Coyotes Wilderness School. Founded in 2000, Two Coyotes is a non-profit nature mentoring organization dedicated to creating a healthier more connected future through connecting people to nature, community and their personal empowerment.

At Two Coyotes the goal of our programs are to nurture:

Character Development:

We help students to identify and refine their gifts, values, and purpose while instilling values such as respect, service, creativity, integrity, and gratitude. Through wilderness challenges students have an opportunity to explore their own deep inner wilderness while overcoming challenges and unlocking gifts.

Community Health:

Our programs create intergenerational opportunities that strengthen community through creating relationships between families, elders, and local stakeholders. We are dedicated to sustainable living practices that support families to live in harmony with the natural world, and their local and global community. Some of these practices include gardening, appreciation of our shared cultural backgrounds, and celebrations that bring the community together.

Deep Nature Connection:

Our programs get kids outside experiencing nature. While traditional environmental education focuses on knowledge based learning, our programs focus on developing emotional connection through experiences in the natural world. We believe that the drive to protect the natural world comes from a deep appreciation and love for nature. Through eating wild plants, fishing, tending fires, sleeping under the stars and learning how to make a fire by rubbing sticks together our students cultivate a deep connection to nature and a stewardship ethic.


Check us out and come join the fun! You and your child will make friends, learn, and grow. Thank you for visiting us.
