WILDERNESS LIVING SKILLS WORKSHOP
Burr Oak Group Campground, Middle Fork River Forest Preserve
Spend 3 days camping in the hardwood forests of Illinois where you will learn to make use of the landscape around you. This is an exciting class with lots of hands-on practice in the essential skills of wilderness survival. Participants will learn to make rope, light fires with fire-by-friction, build a shelter that will keep you warm and dry, find food in the wild, and techniques of cooking food over a fire. All this while sleeping in the comfort of your own tent. Our instructors for this workshop are the highly experienced co-founders of Wild Nature Project. They have led this workshop at our location for 9 years, and we know you will enjoy them while learning so many new skills! $220 per person. Adults only. Space is limited; registration required by September 29. For more info: (217) 896-2455 or [email protected].
