Today’s Guided nature Program…
SURVIVAL IN THE MOUNTAINS—FOCUS ON USEFUL PLANTS
In studying wilderness survival, a lot can be learned from the indigenous cultures about the uses of plants for shelter, food, clothing, tools, and medicine. When you make baskets, bows, arrows, rope, and fire making devices, and many other things from plants, you begin to know not only their names, but their personality and how and where they grow. During the Survival in the Mountains program/hike, you will get to know intimately some of the local plants in the Bogus Basin area with multiple uses as you make cordage and sample some of the wild cuisine. This workshop combines the perspective of the survivalist with that of the ethnobotanist. This program is only one of the many guided nature programs offered this summer.
