Have You Heard The Call of Your Ancestors?

They are telling us that we have lost our way.

We have forgotten the wisdom of the wilderness.

We have neglected our intimate knowledge of nature and disregarded the skills of self-reliance.

Generation by generation - these birthrights have been lost... Isn't it time for you to take them back?

Gain The Skills You Have Always Craved!

For most of you, it has been difficult to find a place where you can learn the skills that the native peoples naturally knew. Television shows and movies can only whet your appetite for the real thing.

Deep down, you know you want to reconnect with nature - and here's your golden opportunity!

You just found a school where it's easy to learn the skills of the wild in our beginner friendly classes.

The Earth Connection School has been in continuous operation since 1997, and there you will learn hands-on lessons from a nationally reknowned instructor.

Learn From An Instructor with Experience

The Earth Connection School is founded and operated by Tim MacWelch. The first classes began 20 years ago, and the school has run continuously ever since. Tim has been featured on several National Geographic programs, Good Morning America and many national and local news & radio venues. Tim is also a prolific writer for Outdoor Life Magazine and OFFGRID Magazine. When Outdoor Life wanted to write a series of books about survival, they came to Tim, who has authored three New York Times Best Selling books, and four additional books on self-reliance and survival.  

Enjoy The Best Curriculum In The Industry

For more than TWO DECADES the Earth Connection School has taught a wide variety of hands-on classes, including friction fire making, wild edible plants, tracking, basketry, primitive tool making, hide tanning, wilderness survival, primitive cooking and many more subjects! Why go to instructors who have only a little experience when you could go to the authority on the subject?
