Beyond Wallpaper: Nature In Outdoor Education | JMBP-E05

This podcast is a production of Jack Mountain Bushcraft Media. The Working Class Woodsman may or may not be a guest in this particular podcast episode and is not responsible for the content (especially for anything he might say when he's a guest).


Nature has become wallpaper in outdoor education; a backdrop for human-focused activities. But it doesn’t need to be. When it’s only scenery, it’s not easy to get people to engage. From personal experience I know that the natural world is a different place to someone who is seeking food, raw materials for crafts, materials for a shelter, and other necessities for life than it is to someone for whom it’s just scenery, or maybe the place they go to do a ropes course. When you rely on it, like the vast majority of humanity throughout history has, your awareness of the subtleties becomes pronounced. It becomes home. Passing this way of knowing the world on to the next generation should be among the top goals of outdoor education, but it’s not. In this podcast, I discuss why.

It was originally given as a presentation at the Snow Walker’s Rendezvous in November, 2013. I told attendees that it would be on the web as a podcast soon, but as sometimes happens technology got in the way. But with our website migration complete, it’s time to hit the publish button. If you’ve been waiting, sorry for the delay.

Wilderness Survival Principles | JMB Podcast Episode 3

This podcast is a production of Jack Mountain Bushcraft Media. The Working Class Woodsman may or may not be a guest in this particular podcast episode and is not responsible for the content (especially for anything he might say when he's a guest).



Wilderness survival; what is it and how do you go about preparing for it? We’ve been teaching survival for 20 years and in that time have learned a few things about it. This is our standard survival lecture, broken down into what you need to know, what you need to do and what you need to carry with you.

We’re re-releasing this episode because we want people to get it in front of more people as the season for backcountry recreation is beginning.

I’m adding a new section to our resource page of articles and downloads; podcasts.  I’m regularly sharing podcasts on learning, the natural world, ecology, and more with our students, and now I’ll be sharing them with anyone who is interested.  This is not the Jack Mountain Bushcraft Podcast.  We’re not responsible for recording or anything else other than listening.  Find it at: http://www.jackmtn.com/articles.html#podcasts.

The first two I’ve got listed are interviews with Paul Stamets, author of Mycelium Running, on how mushrooms can save the world, and with Dr. John Ratey on the relationship between exercise, the brain and learning.  It’s highbrow stuff.

Paul Sveum wrote and recorded this song a few years ago.  It’s our unoffical theme song, and we’ve used it in a bunch of our videos.  In addition to being a talented musician and good friend, Paul is a first-class bushcraft instructor who has spent several years working with the students at Northland College in Wisconsin.
