The Worst Camping Stories Ever
We all have them. Broken Tent Poles. Sudden Cloudbursts. Food Stolen by Raccoons. Tents that leak water all over your sleeping bag. Listen in as Ricardo shares some of his worst experiences camping, and find out how to make those nightmares into the most memorable adventures ever!
Camping Skills Journal
Learning about birds begins with the easiest birds to see that are all around us every day, and becoming a sort of 'profiler' of their looks, their song, their movements and nesting preferences, and that's all that journaling is! It's the very fastest way I know to learn and most importantly, to remember what you learn for the rest of your life!
The Never Fail Campfire Skills Video
Ricardo breaks down some ways that you can learn about birds in your area, where you are able to observe certain things they do and what those things might mean. It's a way to understand what birds are paying attention to in the woods that we as humans rarely understand or pay attention to, and this video can be your doorway into that new world!
Wilderness Knot Tying Skills Activity
We can help pollinators by planting wildflowers that are food for them, making our yard or deck a beautiful resting spot for them to enjoy and get a little food to keep them going! Bees, moths, wasps, hummingbirds and others will enjoy your efforts and you will be making a difference for plants all over your neighborhood too!
