About the event

Nature Education - Wilderness Skills

Lecture and Demonstration to educate participants on the necessity and priority of shelter, water, food and fire in a wilderness setting.  Demonstration will include shelter building and fire by friction.  Dress for the weather.  

Led by skilled wilderness tracker and instructor, Ron Nosek.  Intrigued by animals and the signs that they leave upon the earth—from clear prints to scat to skulls—Ron has a penchant for teaching others about those critters.  Ron is a former attorney (retired after 29 years of criminal trial work) who for many years did two wilderness trips a year just to keep his head in the right place.  He has recently recounted a number of his outdoor experiences in a collection of essays published as Natural Selections.

Ideal for scout troops, school and church groups, families, and anyone with a respect for nature.
