Resiliency Training Teaches Survival Skills to Girl Scouts

Shannon Francis

Shannon Francis

Survival skills trainer Shannon Francis, owner and operator of Resiliency Training LLC, is collaborating with Girl Scouts of Southeast Wisconsin to teach outdoor survival skills such as building shelters, starting fires without matches and making healing salves from medicinal plants. Completion of these survivalist skills provides opportunities for many of the girl scouts to earn their badges in the categories of Environment and Adventure.

Francis, who holds a bachelor’s degree in environmental education, creates comprehensive programs to educate people about outdoor living skills, foraging for wild edible plants, identifying and using medicinal plants, and making natural products for the body and home. She leads workshops and classes for adults and children in addition to collaborating with organizations.
