Building a debris hut survival shelter at our June weekend Wilderness Survival Course.
Upgraded chicken tractor with metal siding and new baby chicks!
Collecting our first homegrown hay from the Stishem property pasture for our dairy sheep and llama!
Building bows from hickory staves at the barn's woodworking shop.
Target practice with the just-completed bows at the bow making workshop.
Youth nature camp - making coal-burned wooden spoons from cedar.
The next few weeks look like they'll be just as eventful - coming up: two more wilderness survival weekend courses, our permaculture design certificate course, wildlife tracking weekend course, another week of camp, survival trapping course, two more wild edible & medicinal plants weekend courses, and more! Once September arrives we then begin another year of the Wilderness Certification Program and Wildlife Tracking Apprenticeship. Hope you get a chance to join in on the fun and learning here at Alderleaf Wilderness College!
