Meet the Instructor

Chris Gavin

Chris is a passionate hunter-gatherer, Master Naturalist, wild food enthusiast, nature guide, husband and dad. If you have taken one of Chris’s trainings or workshops, you’ll know what we mean by passionate. Through his enterprise Eagle Outdoor Skills, Chris helps kids and adults fall in love with the natural world by teaching the empowering skills of safe navigation through wild and urban terrain; identification and sustainable harvest of wild edible plants and mushrooms from their southern Wisconsin habitats and urban landscapes; game tracking, harvest, and butchering; and ultimately, preparation of tasty gourmet meals with every sort of wild harvested ingredient. Through his trainings and workshops Chris also teaches how to preserve harvested ingredients and how to create native and edible landscaping around your home so that you, too, can be ‘awesome in the outdoors’!
