First aid is our initial or immediate response to help treat an illness or injury. Whether out on a day hike or a long backpacking trip, basic first aid techniques and herbal knowledge will allow you to treat common occurrences, such as headaches, dehydration, upset stomach, dizziness, and/or any typical injury.  By learning these skills in wild outdoor spaces we are empowered to feel safe and confident as we go deeper into relationship with the natural environment.

In this full weekend, we will be focusing on Herbal Wilderness First Aid and looking at a range of practical, useful ways of applying herbal medicines to treat a wide variety of situations. We will also be looking at navigation techniques in wild spaces, along side of discussing environmental risks that you may come up against. With our perspective being from the wilderness, we will discuss assessment and treatment during first aid situations, and collaborate as a class for a hands-on learning experience.
