Alderleaf was contracted by Captain Fantastic Productions to provide a customized survival training experience to many of the leading cast members, as part of their preparation for roles portraying a family living in the wilderness. Captain Fantastic is a major film production, starring Viggo Mortensen, which debuted at the Sundance Film Festival in January 2016.

The event included a Powerpoint presentation on the materials and techniques for making stone points and knives, as well as an outdoor live demo on knapping obsidian into arrowheads.

Alderleaf partners with The Mountaineers Seattle Branch each summer to deliver wilderness skills training to urban youth attending their summer day camps. Skills covered include shelter-building, fire-making, basic wildlife tracking, and aidless navigation.

The Discovery Channel contracted with Alderleaf to have co-founder, Jason Knight, consult behind-the-scenes as a local wilderness expert for the "Coastal Catastrophe" episode of Dual Survival. We provided guidance on the survival uses of the flora and fauna local to the Pacific Northwest.
