Instructor: Sarah Palm
Do you have what it takes to survive in the Florida wilderness for 3 days? In survival skills you will learn the basic human needs and simple, lightweight, and inexpensive ways to provides those needs in the wild. Topics covered are: how to have a real survivor attitude, natural movement, simple ways to get physically strong, knots, temperature regulation, shelter building, making fire, finding safe water, signaling, hunting/fishing, foraging/poisonous plants, navigation, wildlife safety and dangerous wildlife, and hurricane prep. Members of the class will be invited to a family camping trip @ Fort DeSoto Youth site, to practice our skills, with previous survival skill class alumni.
