Survival Skills Workshop: Fire Walk with Me

Learn the basic principles of fire-starting, land use laws, and how to procure burnable material in the notoriously damp PNW. 

We will walk through the woods together, collecting tinder materials and firewood while learning ethics of foraging and harvesting burnable materials.

Each person will build their own fire without a lighter and employ a no-fail method taught by field trip leader, Jazmen Yoder. 

Firelighting is the most important bushcraft skill to learn. If you want to increase your preparedness for a survival situation through learning how to procure the right materials to successfully start a fire with only a knife and a simple fire tool, this class is for you! This class will take place rain or shine.

        We acknowledge that Whatcom County is located on the unceded territory of the Coast Salish Peoples. They cared for the lands that included what we’d call the Puget Sound region, Vancouver Island and British Columbia since time immemorial. This gives us the great obligation and opportunity to learn how to care for our surrounding areas and all the natural and human resources we require to live. We express our deepest respect and gratitude for our indigenous neighbors, the Lummi Nation and Nooksack Tribe, for their enduring care and protection of our shared lands and waterways.
