We do these workshops the first Sunday of every month. Learn and share skills such as how to identify edible, medicinal and poisonous plants, track animals, hunt, fish, weave baskets, make survival shelters, flint knap, understand bird language, and other skills our ancestors depended on to thrive in their ecosystems. These outings are geared for adults. Bring a knapsack, first aid kit, water bottle, lunch and appropriate clothing.
