Few things are better than enjoying the great outdoors but would you be prepared if something went wrong?  Do you have the skills and equipment to survive an unplanned night outdoors?  Join a Ranger to learn the Basics of Wilderness Survival.  We will handle equipment, learn the minimum gear to carry and practice making survival fires.  Please dress appropriately for the weather conditions.
