Interns & Volunteers

"We tend to block off many of our senses when we're staring at a screen. Nature time can literally bring us to our senses." Richard Louv, Author of 'The Last Child in the Woods'
"Advancing my primitive skills along with permaculture studies and leadership has invited me into a world that I would have never imagined had I not joined the Primitive Pursuits family! You opened my eyes to a lifestyle, community and profession that I love and plan to dedicate the rest of my life to." C.W., Wilderness Skills Alumna
