This is a BIG day as we learn ancient lessons about fire and life. These teachings go deep into the origin of our species. Our relationship with fire goes back over a million years! And although there are easy modern methods of making fire, nothing compares to spinning up a coal from sticks and blowing it into flame!
We’ll also learn how to efficiently set primitive deadfall traps and snares. I’ve lived Stone Age and relied on these skills in the wilderness of Idaho, Oregon, Montana and British Columbia. We’ll also practice with the simple yet effective rabbit stick and hunt the rabbit-stump! We’ll then go for a walk to learn more about the edible, medicinal and useful plants of the area. No animals will be harmed and all traps will be removed at the end of class.
