On Saturday June 13th at 1pm, the Seattle Chapter of Deep Green Resistance will be hosting an Outdoor Skills Workshop. Learn WILDERNESS SURVIVAL. Heal yourself with HERBAL MEDICINE. Read the landscape as a NATURALIST. Join us just outside Seattle on the flanks of Squak Mountain for a half-day informal workshop on outdoor skills. This is the first in a series, and the day’s activities will depend on the weather and group.
Topics may include:
– Wild edible plants and fungi
– Useful wild plants (for tools, fire-making, weapons, shelter, etc)
– Friction fires (bowdrill)
– Natural fibers for basketry and cordage
– Finding clean water
– Medicinal Plants and natural first aid
– Maps and Navigation
– Geology and watershed dynamics
– Ecological basics
– Regional history
We’ll meet in Issaquah, on the SW side of downtown at the intersection of Cabin Creek Ln. SW and Sunrise Pl. SW. This is on the east side of Squak Mountain near the Squak Mountain Access trail.
Lunch, water bottle, raingear and warm clothes, pocketknife, paper bag, notebook, comfortable walking shoes, and a backpack to carry it all. Any questions? Contact us!
Guy McPherson in Seattle
On Wednesday June 17th at 5:30 p.m., Guy McPherson will be presenting and hosting a discussion at The Royal Room, 5000 Rainier Avenue South, Seattle, Washington (dinner at 5:00 p.m., reservations encouraged). More Western Washington and PNW tour locations are listed here.
Guy McPherson is an energetic speaker and talented moderator. He has appeared before countless audiences to speak about the two primary consequences of our fossil-fuel addiction: global climate change and energy decline.
Most supporters of Deep Green Resistance don’t get to see the more casual side of our group, so one of our members put together this short video that was filmed last spring after an environmental conference at which DGR members spoke. Check it out:
