This website is designed to inform you about the various ways that plants can be used for survival or basic camping needs. There are detailed instructions to get you from the raw plant material to the finished product. Additionally, there is a page for each species describing where you can find it, basic identifying characteristics, and uses. Please double-check before ingesting any plant! The site is set up to allow you to search the plant inventory in three ways:
Search by Use:

Look here if you are trying to figure out which plant will be the most efficient material for the task at hand. Search categories include everything from tinder, to insect repellent, to bow and arrows, to toothbrushes.

Search by Name:

Look here if you have a plant and would like to know what it can be used for. You can search by common name, scientific name, or family name.

Search by Characteristics:

Look here if you have a plant and are unsure of the name. Start with broad categories such as tree, shrub, flower, or herbaceous plant and narrow your unknown plant down to a specific species by choosing characteristics that describe your plant.
