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:

  • Teaching

    teaches skills to help people recreate on their own, such as Urban Cycling Techniques.

  • Recreation

    provides a healthy option to enhance fitness, such as Family and Friends Snowshoe Adventure.

  • Adventure

    offers opportunities for active, experiential learning, such as Teens Outside High Adventure Camps.

  • Competency

    helps build skill mastery, such as Skaters in the Woods.

  • Knowledge

    promotes understanding of the natural environment, such as Eastside Explorers Speaker Series.

  • Stewardship

    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  

Look for TRACKS in the Connections recreation brochure to find classes, activities and events that are part of the TRACKS initiative.
