Join us for this all-ages nature walk, where we discuss the most essential plants and trees for wilderness survival in our area. We will go over a selection of plants and trees with a variety of uses including nutritional, medicinal, and utility functions. The plants we will cover are chosen based on factors like the number, variety, and importance of their uses, as well as their prevalence, abundance, and distribution. Many of the plants that will be covered can also be found all over the country and even worldwide, allowing you to take what you learn anywhere you go!

Important Course Information (Please Read)

ARTOS all-ages Essential Survival Plants and Trees: Northwest Montana 1-day courses are open to the public and are held at a beautiful 250-acre camp on the shores of Flathead Lake in Lakeside, MT, just south of Kalispell, MT.

The course will run the whole day, about 8 hours, with a lunch break in the middle. Class starts at 0900.

After your order is processed, an orientation package with further information, including exact location, start time, what to expect, etc. will be sent via email.

Instructors are trained and certified in emergency medicine and will carry first aid equipment, emergency signaling devices, and defensive measures for dangerous wildlife throughout the course.

A complete refund can be issued for any cancellation more than 21 days before the date of the course. For any cancellation within 21 days of the date of the course, a credit will be issued and honored for any open course of equal value.

In the event that ARTOS Survival must cancel a course due to unforeseen circumstances, students will be given notice as soon as possible and given the option to either reschedule to a later scheduled course of equal value, to be notified when a new course date for the enrolled course is scheduled, or to receive a full refund. If flying in or scheduling lodging or vehicle rentals for your trip, please choose refundable options or purchase travel insurance in the event that this does happen.
