Jaybird Tignor

Jaybird is a naturalist, certified permaculture designer, tracker, wilderness first responder, ecological steward, wild tender, and craftsman. The foundation of his knowledge and inspiration came from his father, who was brought up trapping, hunting, and gathering in southern Appalachia, and by his Mamaw and Papaw, who routinely walked out the door and returned with a wild salad. He’s taken that knowledge to heart and expanded upon it through his studies in botany, ecological stewardship, Traditional Ecological Knowledge, and primitive skills. By living close to nature, he believes we can reclaim our natural place in the ecosystem, tending the earth in a manner that strengthens biodiversity and creates a truly regenerative and sustainable future for all life forms.
