Class Experience

Having been exposed to camping and wilderness since I could walk, I have a passion for teaching others the skills for surviving in the wilderness. Considering recent acts of nature around the world, including earthquakes, hurricanes, flash floods and tsunamis, I also believe it is essential for everyone to have at least the minimal skills needed to start a fire, forage for food, find and treat water, and build a shelter. 

My life experience, as well as recent coursework thru Alderleaf Wilderness College give me the necessary knowledge and skills to be able to pass this important information on to your learner on a level that they can understand!
 1 file available upon enrollment
The three class presentations will be uploaded to the classroom so that students may download them and save them for future reference. Other handouts are also provided, covering various topics discussed in class.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
45 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
**This class was created as a continuation of my Wilderness Survival Skills 101 course - - that class is a requirement for this class, so please be sure your learner has completed that course before enrolling in this one!

**Parents should be aware that this class discusses practical survival protein - - which includes fish, small mammals, birds, snakes and insects. I am a huge animal lover and cringe at the thought of having to take the life of a small animal, but when faced with the prospect of surviving in the wilderness, this is a life-saving skill that needs to be addressed. If this is offensive to you, please consider another class instead. :)
