Sam Larson is a wilderness skills instructor, author, and speaker, with years of experience in a variety of wilderness environments. At 18, he chose to go to the wilderness, rather than inevitably flunking out of college. At 24 he became the youngest winner of the world’s most difficult and dangerous survival reality TV challenge, ALONE, on the HISTORY channel. He is the founder and lead instructor for Woodsong Wilderness Education, a company that specializes in teaching wilderness living skills through events, instructing, and consulting. Most importantly, he is a husband and father of two. Drawing from his experiences, Sam will talk on our need for wild places.
