How to eat and SURVIVE in the woods

Imagine learning how to survive in the wild. What if there were a way to conquer California when disaster conquers city life and comfortable civilization. Why worry about chemtrails, earthquakes, a radioactive tsunami, a Chinese or Russian invasion, epidemic, or the disclosure of extraterrestrial meddling in earthling affairs? Do something about it. Nothing trumps self-reliance.

Christopher Nyerges has provided survival education since 1974 through The School of Self-Reliance (Facebook). He runs field trips and workshops. Learn urban and wilderness self-reliance and survival [see schedule]. Learn about:
  • WILDERNESS SKILLS (fire-making, weaponry, shelter-building)
  • URBAN SKILLS (food and water storage, emergency preparedness, alternatives to electricity)
  • Private and group consultations 
  • Lectures to scouts, churches, schools, libraries, etc. 
  • Publications and DVDs for further survival education

BOOKS: Guide to Wild Foods and Useful Plants has been re-published in full color. It is available now from major book retailers, Amazon, and in Christopher's store.

Foraging California is a full color guide to California's wild food organized by plant families with lots of additional information like recipes (by Pascal Baudar and Mia) and charts about nutrition. [It's] "an amazing book," according to Paul Campbell.

The Story of the School of Self-reliance
Go Green and Save Money at Home
The school was founded by Christopher and Dolores Nyerges, who had a dream to live and teach practical skills to urban folk who have lost touch with our most basic roots.

Since Dolores’ passing in 2008 Christopher has carried on with peripatetic faculty with unique skills.

Since 1974 Christopher has taken over 30,000 children and adults on his Wild Food and Survival Skills Outings, as well as other field trips and outdoor programs.

Nyerges has worked with such groups as Sierra Club, Tree People, the Southwest Museum, the Boy Scouts of America, Elder Hostel, home schools, public and private schools, churches, and libraries.
