This site was created in the fall of 2020 (during the pandemic) to share top quality content online. Creating this site rests on decades of learning and teaching interesting ways to experience the benefits of nature. You will find some great activities that can be incorporated on family outings with some simple but engaging topics. For professional guides, there is plenty of tools here for you too. Those looking to dig deep into bushcraft and survival skills will find some in-depth material too. Take a look around–enjoy it! share it!
If you enjoy the content and are able, please donate as if you were taking a workshop. This website (and related activities) is my full time job. Please support free content by making a donation. If you already have then a big THANK YOU! ; }
NOTE. Some activities, and nature outings in general, have inherent risk. This site is not intended to show you basic principles of safety. In that sense, this site is for entertainment purposes.

About Chad Clifford
“Chad Woodsman, fire maker and over-all Wildman Extraordinare! Many thanks for all your help on the Bare Necessities; and for the wealth of traditional knowledge that you had at your disposal.”Hugh McManners (BBC Survival Series)
“Awesome recording Chad – nice and clear, love the sound of the Bittern sucking in air! ”
Marc Anderson (Wild Ambience)
“It isn’t everyone who can step into the woods armed with nothing more than a pocket knife and their own wits and have the skills needed to survive…one of the few true remaining wilderness men – possessing the skills and knowledge to not only make primitive weapons and natural cordage, but also start a fire, track animals and build primitive shelters.”
