Primitive Skills Workshop

This annual two-day workshop (June 10-11, 2017) focuses on primitive living and how our ancestors once survived by perfecting the skills needed to live off the land.  Attendees will learn how to make shelters, matchless fires, cordage, increase nature awareness skills, find safe water, and identify a few common edible and medicinal plants.  The overnight hands-on workshop is geared towards adults. Teenagers are permitted if accompanied by a parent. Individuals and families only, no groups. Participants will need to bring basic camping gear food and water.  This free program requires registration.
