What we're about

Connect to the land, our non-human relatives and each other by exploring the natural world through wild edibles, survival and awareness skills, and other classes! Create meaningful, reciprocal relationships with other species through foraging plants and mushrooms, and hunting. This group is all about embodying our identities as human animals as an active part of an integrated ecosystem, working to repair the world.

Events are posted by different nature education programs, as well as group members. If you have an event you'd like to announce, please get in touch!
