I'm trying to set up my own guide-book of natural edible resources for wilderness-survival purposes. I sorta woke up the other day and realized that Earth is actually where I live, but unfortunately I'm a total layman when it comes to Earthly matters. So . . .
I'm looking for some basic knowledge about plant identification and animal tracking. I live in Hadley Massachusetts - very close to Amherst, in the thick of the Pioneer Valley - and I'm curious if anyone knows of any local workshops/educational resources/demonstrations/books that would help me out.
