jon young-Wednesday, July 17, 6pm EDT: Mitchell’s guest this evening is Jon Young. For the last 26 years, Jon has been mentoring folks in the nearly lost art of understanding bird and animal language.

Just as science is beginning to see the credibility in this ancient skill, Jon has been leading communities world-wide to get these skills back through lectures, workshops, media—but mostly through training and mentoring.
Jon’s leading-edge work on bird language has been posted in magazine articles, books and is the subject of popular audio CD series.

Inspired by his childhood mentoring with tracker and author Tom Brown, Jr., Jon has pioneered blending Native mentoring techniques from around the world with the tools of modern field ecology. Under Jon Young’s guidance, Wilderness Awareness School, which was originally founded as a high school nature club, has grown to reach students all around the world with its programs that help people reconnect with their native environments.

Wilderness Awareness School’s approach to nature education Jon Young officially founded the school in 1983, and “re-founded” it upon meeting Ingwe in 1984. They are considered our co-founders. Several other individuals have made profound contributions to our philosophy and perspectives on naturalist mentoring. We honor these people as “Significant Contributors” of the school.

Jon Young currently lives in California and teaches a variety of programs in California and around the U.S. and Europe. 

Mitchell joined in some of the early Wilderness Awareness School Programs with Jon, Mohawk elder Jake Swamp, Ingwe and others down in West VA. during the mid-1990’s.
This occasion to interview Jon again is a welcome one, as Mitchell saw the effect of the Schools on families, sensitizing them to the wonders of Nature and the vital importance of preserving and protecting Her.
