It has been stated that thousands of pounds of high quality protein and fat are wasted by our automobile culture every year. If we are able to transcend the stigmas and jokes and learn the real possibilities of roadkill meat, we can turn a tragedy into a bounty and give honor to those animals by putting them to use.

​In this one day course, you will learn about the safety, legality, logistics, and ethics surrounding roadkill salvage. Starting with how to tell if an animal is safe to eat, instruction will proceed to discuss and demonstrate the tools and techniques to create a Roadkill Kit. Students will then learn about basic animal breakdown methods and kitchen care. This class has a hands-on approach so come with an open mind and wear old clothes, and be prepared to never see your daily drives in the same way.webly

Legal methods will be focused on the laws in Michigan, all students are encouraged to investigate proper procedures for their own state or locality. Learn more about Roadkill from this 2018 Car & Driver article by Ben Hewitt
