Meet the Team
We love the outdoors. When we are not back-country, camping and practicing bushcraft skills, we are reading about wilderness experiences or watching one of the many bushcraft and survival shows. Our idols as kids were (and still are) people like Ray Mears, Les Hiddins (Bush Tucker Man) and Les Stroud (Survivor Man). We live breathe and dream about bushcraft and wilderness skills and we know you do too!
Boreal forest survival expert Mors Kohanski is known for saying the more you know, the less you carry. We started this site as a platform to help our community learn to carry less. Our region has dozens of bushcraft schools and program and hundreds of experts running meetings, gathering and programming. We also have a strong community interested in wilderness and primative camping, bikepacking, overlanding hunting and a variety of other outdoor adventure activities. We geek out on all of this, from carving green wood tools to shelter building and wilderness kayaking. We have built New England Bushcraft Organisation as your resource for keeping up to date on all things Bushcraft in New England.
