Detailed Information:
The Kamana Naturalist Training Program is a four level independent study program that covers the naturalist background needed to engage in the wilderness arts, including tracking, bird language, survival and native living skills, traditional herbalism, and naturalist mentoring. It is the ultimate blueprint for a students’ time spent in the field and in conducting nature-related research. Students become confident naturalists, melding modern field ecology with the skills of a native scout. It was written by naturalist and tracker Jon Young (with author Tom Brown, Jr. as a consulting editor), who uniquely designed it to model the process in which Tom mentored him as a boy.

Kamana is completed "at your own pace and at your own place." All four levels of the program may take one to four years to complete. Kamana levels Two*, Three and Four include personal correspondence with Wilderness Awareness School instructors via mail, email and phone. It is Wilderness Awareness School’s unique system of learning that will mentor you with the help of our trained instructors.
