Echols Dorm: Brick Wall By Side Door
Walnut Creek Park
If you would like to learn some fun outdoor survival skills that can allow you to stay out in the woods comfortably without your gear but won’t turn you into Bear Grillz overnight, now is your chance! We will hike to the spot where we built a shelter during the Winter Survival Skills adventure, learn some of the basics of constructing a warm, dry shelter, practice starting a fire from materials we gather in the woods, identify plants that supply clean drinking water, and gather wild salad greens to add to our burgers.
All of these skills I have personally tested on outings into the woods and learned from professional outdoor educators. I will also cover briefly some equipment to bring with you so as to avoid a survival situation in the first place. Bring water to drink, and snacks as well if you’d like to. I will expand the adventure as drivers sign up.
