With our focus on Primitive Skills for the month of November, Glen Butler, a regular Water, Woods, & Wild Wonders volunteer, spent time showing us how to build primitive shelters. Maria's woods are a perfect place to practice.
After spending time in the DRC classroom with Emlyn from Nature Up North to learn how to upload our photos onto the NUN website, the DRC Crew headed over to Indian Creek Nature Center to explore the wetlands and trails.
The DRC crew traveled to Daniel Bombard's land in Norfolk to,learn bushcraft and survival skills. We are grateful to him for teaching us about surviving in the wilderness.
The DRC Kids traveled to Maria's land in Pierrepont to play in the woods, build a campfire and meet the kittens.
The Deep Root kids had a fun time exploring, building forts and even swimming in chilly October. Trish and Oliver will tell you the water was perfect though.
We explored the SUNY Canton trail and went swimming in the Grasse River. Later that day we MOW'd the Grasse River using water monitoring tools from Nature Up North.
Thank you to the Martin Family for showing us around their farm and letting us pick tomatoes and raspberries. We also helped with separating grapes and cutting scallions.
