Welcome to Wild Sound Stories, a gateway to imagination where natural sights and sounds invite you into the heart of nature. Step out of your human form for a few wild minutes to walk, fly, swim or float as the animal or elemental star of your own adventure story. Become a coyote, a salmon, or a peaceful bank of fog rolling through an ancient redwood forest!


listen Wild Sound Stories

Wild Sound Stories are six-minute multimedia adventures that connect you with the animals, cultures and habitats of a natural area. Sound stories are a fun and intuitive way to sample the unique character of a wild place and gain insight into the lives, loves and struggles of others who share this world we call home.

Experience beautiful images and authentic natural sounds recorded on location in binaural stereo for a "you-are-there" adventure. These powerful sensory stories contain no words and can quickly connect you to the feeling of wild.


podcasts! Conversations

Listen to podcasts to explore the larger context of each sound story. Drop in on conversations with conservationists, researchers and creative artists who care about the health and welfare of our community .. and who tell a good story!


Download a portable adventure to your iPod and you're ready to explore a Wild Sound Story in the field. ADVENTURES-TO-GO are designed to be thoughtful, gentle adventures that connect the explorer with the cadence of natural voices.

go with me Into the Wilds

Explore your place among the wild things. Go with me on a daylong sound safari or longer on a Journey of the Senses. Listening retreats in California, Hawaii and coastal British Columbia are ideal for those who seek an antidote to civilization and who want to experience a deep connection with life through the senses. COMING SOON.



You don't have to travel deep into the woods, far out onto the water or high into the mountains to connect with our wild world. Let any natural place inspire you. Learn to listen for the quieter voices carried on the wind, the changing song of the streams and the wild singing in the branches. You'll discover a grand world brimming with diversity, urgent in its need to sustain life, and welcoming of your interest in its conservation.

Because we are interconnected with the larger community of life, the struggle of another in our community is our struggle, too. As you experience the stories of the wild world, imagine life from another's perspective. Reflect upon how that life is different and marvel at how it is also the same. If you ask yourself what are the best ways to help others survive in these changing times, you'll be helping to create a world in which we all may flourish.

Wild Sound Stories are the stories of emotional connection to life on earth. If life is your adventure, these are your stories.
