In 1996, Andy Buesser purchased a 40 acre farm just minutes north of Ann Arbor. There, along with Patrick Munson, M.D., he formed Wildheart, a wilderness skills school. Together, they spent 15 years teaching the tracking, observation, and wilderness skills they in turn were learning from world renowned tracker, Tom Brown, Jr., apprentice to the last apache scout. At the core of their teaching was the philosophy that the overarching law of nature is one of cooperation, not competition. Human beings have a unique choice in this process. We must become stewards in order to “surthrive.” It is in the spirit of stewardship that Andy takes us on a slow mosey through this fully restored ecosystem of wetlands, prairie, savannah, and forest on the 30 acres accepted into the Ann Arbor Greenbelt Program. Rain gear, a water bottle, and sturdy boots are recommended. There are no trails other than those made by the resident animals.
