This is a trilingual collection of songs by members of our Coyote Programs community and close friends. It’s a celebration of nature and the gifts and inspirations that it brings.

”The wind blows…” refers to the grounding reminders that nature offers during challenging times, and also to a really fun game we played with participants in our programs this past summer. Please click on the song details for more about the songs and the artists.

Proceeds from sales will go to support our financial assistance offerings for people who need help to access our outdoor mentoring programs.

Please consider purchasing the whole album by clicking ‘buy’ and support this initiative. Thank you so much!

The album was mastered at Backward Clock Sound by award winning producer and multi-disciplinary artist Jeremy Costa.
