Join Earth Native School for a two-day basic wilderness survival and self-reliance course and learn natural resource based primitive wilderness survival skills utilized by indigenous populations for hundreds of thousands of years. These skills have served human kind for hundreds of thousands of years and require no modern materials or supplies. 

Are you and your loved ones prepared? 

Natural disasters of historical size like Hurricane Harvey are becoming more and more common. As we know, in a crisis like this sociatal supply and power lifelines that we count on in our day to day lives break down. In this more 

volatile world you can't afford not to prepare yourself and your family in advance. 

Each year we hear countless stories of ordinary people who are thrust into unexpected survival situations. Do you have the skills necessary to take care of yourself or your family if you were lost, in a natural disaster, or injured away from immediate help?

Additionally, these skills can be a really fun pursuit for families and can enhance your camping and outdoor trips and experiences.
