Some of the techniques shown on this website are meant solely
for use in wilderness survival situations. Please
note that in most places it is illegal to use these methods

disturb native plants in many locations, including within the
boundaries of national parks.
WARNING: Never eat
plants that are growing in an area where they may have been sprayed
with pesticides or herbicides (weed killers), or where the water
