Wolf Journey Earth Conservation Courses guide you through skills of the Neighborhood Naturalist, Traditional Herbalist, Wildlife Tracker, Wilderness Survival Scout, Sustainable Citizen and Environmental Educator.
Wolf Journey online course books consist of 20 chapters, each with four core study experiences that can be completed as a series of lessons to earn a conservation certificate in your area of interest.
Wolf Journey follows scientific, observational, interactive, and often improvisational methods of learning, inspired by stories of nature. Kim & Chris Chisholm introduce every chapter with a live video, guiding you to create your own experiences at home through wonder, research, expression and documentation.

Wolf Journey study experiences revolve around your personal “sit spot” which is an interactive method of outdoor education using your own “control group” area from which to compare everything in nature. You’ll receive inspiration and instruction in each chapter of the book, then head outside to experience wonders of your “sit spot“ before returning to journal your experiences.
