In summer 2017, Joe joined The Nature Place Day Camp staff as our Outdoor Skills activity leader, and as a camping trip leader. Joe has been immersed in the world of earth skills for years, honing his craft through his studies at Tom Brown Jr.’s Tracker School in Waretown, NJ. Joe’s mission is to share his knowledge of these ancestral skills, and help folks of all ages reconnect to nature and to their instincts and intuition. He has worked with the local organization Children of the Earth Foundation, Twin Eagles Wilderness School in Idaho, the Whidbey Institute in Washington, and independently with local communities including homeschool groups and adults.
When not leading workshops, Joe can often be found roaming the woods with his sidekick, Cyra, a big fluffy dog. Joe is a Wilderness First Responder and CPR certified.
