The Earth Skills Correspondence Course is a ten block course that leads students through the skills of wilderness survival, in your own bioregion. It emphasizes the mastery of shelter, water, fire, camp skills, plants and trees, cooking, safety & hazards, attitude & philosophy and instructor training. Ricardo Sierra mentors the course through e-mail, this blog and a private Facebook Group, and students are self-guided. The course provides a wealth of skills and a powerful foundation from which to build and grow in any personal or wilderness study direction.

Earth Skills Correspondence Conference Calls: Are you In?

I am about to unveil an important announcement (no, not the snow 'wave' sliding off of our hide shed roof!). It's regarding a new Earth Skills Instructor Certification Training Course I am doing, so stay tuned for that next week, but in the meantime, I have a quick question for those of you taking the Earth Skills Correspondence Course:

Are you interested in being part of a conference call (toll free) of earth skills students, where you send in questions by email and I answer them, as well as provide further mentoring to the group?

The call would be for about an hour long, and probably held sometime in the early evening perhaps in the middle of the week.

I can arrange for the first call to be in mid April if you guys are wanting to try this out and see how it goes. Please let me know and we can take this to the next step and set it up.

Hope you are all well and let me know! Thanks!

Anyone Up for some Earth Skills Weekends in 2010?

I am in the process of putting together the Earth Skills Correspondence Course Weekends for this year and am wondering if you all have any preferences for dates or months to visit Hawk Circle? At this point, we have an opening for a weekend in June, something in August and then sometime in September or October.

Anyway, they are always a good time, with learning and practice of skills, some great hikes, campfires and whatever else comes our way.

Let me know if you think you can make a weekend this year and we can get these scheduled!
