Jason Stillwagner

Jason Stillwagner was born into an outdoor family. His father was an assistant Scoutmaster when he was born, so he grew up in the Scout troop learning outdoor skills as he was learning to talk and walk. His mother taught him the fine arts of painting and drawing. His parents raised him with a deep reverence for nature. One favorite quote of his father is "Nature expresses the glory of the Divine more purely than anything else." By the time he was 12 he was taking part in "survival campouts" with the Scouts and orienteering competitions. He has honed both his artistic skills and his survival skills throughout his adult life, adding new skills along the way. Today he is an artist living on his ancestral land in Rittman, Ohio, in a multi-generational household raising most of its own food, and still enjoys outdoor activities with his 83 year old father and his children.

Orienteering Workshop

Everyone loves to go hiking in the woods... getting close to nature, the fresh air, the wildlife. What happens, however, if you follow your bliss a little TOO far and get lost? In this workshop, Jason will teach basic map and compass use, how to mark your trail, how to find where you are on a map, and how to find your way back to where you want to be.
