    Eating wild foods may be the best way to move from being an observer of nature to a participant. Our Wild Foods course is designed to help you travel lighter, eat better, and enjoy the edible goodies that can be harvested from your surroundings. Topics include traditional cooking methods, edible plants, woodburning backpacking and Yukon stoves, baking, primitive fishing techniques, carving utensils, cookware, traps and snares, etc. 

    All food and meals are provided, but you may bring whatever snacks and drinks you'd like as well. Please bring the camping items necessary for your comfort during the workshop. We also bring some new gear to workshops for sale, but if there is something specific you are interested in, please let us know so we are sure to bring it to the site. 

    (PLEASE NOTE: Due to the expense of food and materials, the 25% discount offered to returning students does not apply to this course).

    Bushcraft Northwest also offers private workshops for individuals, groups, and government agencies. Cost varies depending on group size and whether the course will be held at our location in Goldendale, WA or if we are traveling to your location. Please contact us via email or feel free to call  (360) 606-1036 to find out more information. 

    Topics taught during the workshop


    Traps and Snares: Make snares and Paiute deadfalls, both of which can be modified for nonlethal use and fishing purposes when not in a survival situation. Making these ingenious contraptions will give you a new respect for our ancestors and spark your own creativity.

    Fire: Being able to light a fire can mean the difference between life and death. This section of the course covers vital topics such as fuel types, finding and preparing tinder, friction fire lighting, using a fire steel, etc.

    Edible Plants: Plants are an easy and reliable food souce once the edible varities can be positively identified.

    Primitive Fishing: Learn how to make traditional hooks, netting needles, nets, and cordage

    Traditional Cooking Methods: Hot rocks, grilling, cedar planks, baking, Yukon stoves and other cooking platforms
