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.

Just a quick update to let you know that I am planning the first Conference Call for the Earth Skills Correspondence Course for Tuesday, May 4th at 7 pm.
To register, just send me an email and I will send you the call in number and code to join the call.
Then send me your questions by email and I will answer them in the call, as well as any others that come up through the conversation. I will be focusing on skills for Spring for a short time and then open the call up to you and your questions.
I expect the call to be about an hour, maybe slightly longer, depending on your questions. It is okay if you can only make part of the call, too.
Also, I have the dates set for the June Earth Skills Correspondence Course weekend, which is June 12-13th. If you would like to come out to Hawk Circle, stay in a cabin or leanto and practice some skills and get some first hand mentoring on the skills of your choice, please let me know. I just need to register you so we know there is a place for you to stay and what skills your are hoping to work on during the weekend.
The weekend is free, but donations are accepted! Bring you own food and drink (we have great spring water here) and you can use our camp fire circle for cooking too. Or you can get pizza in Cherry Valley as well as other food if you don't want to cook.
Hope you are enjoying a great spring!
