Custom, by-request, and contracted courses and workshops.

If you get a group of interested people together, you can request a custom course. At this time we are not able to fund custom courses through our limited grant money, so they will be noticeably more expensive than the skill-share series. We can also make arrangements to do courses for even smaller groups or couples, just inquire and we’ll talk about it! We also can be hired by other organizations who would like to host a Queer Nature course in their area.

Note that the core Queer Nature team has particular strengths in certain areas of naturalist, ancestral, or survival skills:

  • Wildlife Tracking and Trailing
  • Primitive Fire-Making Methods and Fire as a Tool
  • Coiled Basketry and Natural Cordage
  • Short-term or Emergency Survival Skills
  • Animal Processing
  • Equine Connection/Horsemanship
  • Introduction to Deer Hunting in a Sacred Manner
  • Nature-based and Self-generated Ceremony
  • Council Work
  • Scouting (Camouflage, Stealth, Evasion, and Situational Awareness in the outdoors)

In Collaboration with our community members, we can also coordinate workshops on:

  • Botany and Herbal Medicine
  • Hide Tanning

I.E. We recently were hosted for a weekend-long LGBTQIA+ course at Wilderness Awareness School in Seattle.
