Finding Food in the Wild

Imagine getting lost in the woods without bringing more than an energy bar and an apple. Would you know the mushrooms that are safe to eat? The berries that are tasty and sweet? Hopefully that never happens! However, survival skills come in handy in any type of outdoor activity, whether you’re camping, hiking, or in an unfamiliar place.

Try your hand at survival with the free online survival video game, Morterra. You can interact with other players as you claim territory, search for food and water, and build a homestead.

Survival strategies in nature is also a way of life! You may have heard of bush craft, living off-grid, and self-sufficiency, which echoes how many humans still live today. To dig more into these topics, check out these books from your library and practice these simple tips to help care for the environment:

  • Ditch plastic.
  • Recycle wherever possible.
  • Don’t litter - trash on the ground ends up in our waterways and harms sea life.
  • Encourage friends and family to do the same!
