Offering students access to NATURE during the traditional school day!

In order to create a society that truly reveres the natural world, we must offer its citizens life-changing experiences in nature.

Joseph Cornell, author of multiple books including “Sharing Nature with Children” is considered one of the most highly regarded nature educators in the world today

NatureTrack provides K-12 students in Santa Barbara County with outdoor field trips where teachers specify what they would like NatureTrack volunteer docents to emphasize based on what students are currently studying in class. Direct communication with teachers ensures that each field trip supplements in-classroom units of study and is in alignment with state-mandated standards.

Dedicated volunteer docents who enjoy sharing their knowledge and love of the outdoors with students lead NatureTrack adventures. Students learn the wonder of what is in their own “backyard” by hiking on local trails, spending time in oak woodlands, chaparral, grasslands, coastal sage scrub, and other regional ecosystems.

There is never a cost to schools, students, teachers, or parents for a NatureTrack field trip.  NatureTrack even covers bus transportation expenses to get students and teachers from their schools to field trip locations.

PLEASE NOTE: If you do not hear from NatureTrack within 48-hours of your reservation, email: or call 805-886-2047.
