Survival Series:
I can’t tie a knot. I have no sense of direction. Drop me off in the woods and I’d be lost and panicking in 20 minutes.
Is this you?

We got you covered! Check out our Survival Series!!

Knot Tying on August 1, 6:30-7:30 pm
The right knot can make all the difference at home, on the farm and in the woods. You’ll leave this basic course knowing how to tie something up (bind), tie something down (loop), tie two things together (bend), and how to tie a rope around something (hitch).

Map & Compass on August 8, 6:30-7:30 pm
Learn how to use these two tools and the world is your oyster! What is a bearing? How do I aim off? Which route is more demanding? Become more self-reliant and confident in your travels; the art of navigation allows you to find your way.

Wild Edibles on August 15, 6:30-7:30 pm
Foraging is the identification, collection, and eating of herbs and other wild plants. Looking for edible plants reveals the richness of the land and can connect you to a place like nothing else. In this introductory class, you’ll get tips for foraging safely, learn what treats might be growing in your backyard, and some easy ways to enjoy your harvest.

 


Class taught by Jocelyn Duffy, one of the nicest humans on the planet and she has over a decade of experience developing and presenting programs about nature, science, and history for federal, state, and regional organizations. An expert in natural resource management, she enjoys exploring the places where people and the environment come together.

ALL are welcome!! Bring your kids or come alone!
Better yet, come alone and then impress your kids later by casually boiling up some pine needle tea while you whip out a square knot and rattle off your current coordinates. 🙂
