Earth Native Wilderness School

In a time when most people find out about survival skills through reality television, Dave Scott is the exception. The founder and president of Earth Native Wilderness School spent his formative years exploring the Texas wilderness. As a US Army veteran, he is 1 of only 20 people in North America qualified as a Track and Sign Specialist. He has devoted himself to helping society remember the skills that have kept us alive for thousands of years.

Earth Native Wilderness School's instructors come from all walks of life, but they each have a love of nature. With lessons in medicinal plants, basic wilderness survival, and wildlife tracking, the school's classes teach students skills such as fashioning tools for survival, arrow making, fire by friction, and finding an ATM in the desert. The staff also realizes humanity's spiritual connection to nature and can even guide students through a vision quest to strengthen their relationship with nature.
