TRACKS was started in the spring of 2007 amid growing concern and research identifying a "nature deficit" within society. Since its inception, TRACKS has effectively infused many Bellevue programs and activities with its six key standards:
teaches skills to help people recreate on their own, such as Urban Cycling Techniques.
provides a healthy option to enhance fitness, such as Family and Friends Snowshoe Adventure.
offers opportunities for active, experiential learning, such as Teens Outside High Adventure Camps.
helps build skill mastery, such as Skaters in the Woods.
promotes understanding of the natural environment, such as Eastside Explorers Speaker Series.
encourages and creates opportunities for stewardship and volunteer service, such as Stewardship Saturdays and Teens Outside.
To volunteer with the TRACKS program, or if you are a teen looking for service hours, please email TRACKS@bellevuewa.gov.
Look for TRACKS in the Connections recreation brochure to find classes, activities and events that are part of the TRACKS initiative.
