He soon found himself raised in the culture of naturalists, trackers and elders living in old ways. Mo has been trained in wilderness survival for over 10 years and has studied at the Vermont Wilderness School and Hawk Circle Wilderness Education center. He is currently teaching wilderness skills around the state, including at Earthwalk Vermont and Wisdom of the Herbs School.

Mo is also the brains behind the Lord of the Rings Camp down in Monkton (see video below).
