Primitive Fire

2020 is the “Year of Fire” for North Carolina State Parks!  Humans have been making fire for thousands of years.  Fire is an essential survival tool used to boil water, cook food, and generate heat to keep you warm.  This program will teach you how to gather the right materials to make a good fire as well as the actual process of making a primitive fire using a pump drill.
