We are excited to bring a new primitive skills and bushcraft event to Connecticut!  Having been attending and instructing at the Maine Primitive Gathering and the New England Primitive Skills Gathering for many years, the organizers of Cattail created this gathering to continue the tradition of creating community around a mutual love of living and learning close to Nature. 

The Cattail Skills Gathering is a chance to learn about wilderness skills such as friction fire, wildlife tracking, flint knapping, wild edible and useful plants, woodworking, herbalism, campcraft, nature awareness, as well as self-sufficiency and homesteading.  Over the course of the weekend, talented instructors in these areas will lead workshops on the landscape of White Memorial Foundations 4000 acres of diverse forest and wetland. 

Bring your family, camp out, spend time by the fire, make lifelong friends, learn a ton and feel at home.  We can’t wait to see you and learn from you!
