This weekend will focus on the survival and scouting skills of our ancestral past, using earth-based materials to make natural containers to both carry food and gear. Students will learn basic skills to track and trap small game, bird, and fish (There will be no live processing of animals in this workshop, the skills are only for educational purposes). This training is life-saving skills needed for holding and transporting resources, as well as to acquire food and sustenance in a survival situation.
