About this event :

Description…………………Fire and Frost Tickets

This month we will be learning the 6 disciplines of tracking as we locate animal tracks around Fox Haven Learning Center’s property. As we explore the land we will identifying several plants that make great crafted cordage for survival.

We’ll travel the woods and fields of Fox Haven, stopping as we go to practice different skills. Fire-building, reading the landscape and navigating it with and without a compass, tracking, and building shelters out of what we bring and what we can find will be part of the fun. Real life survival stories will be shared along the way. Youth will be encouraged to use the information and skills they learn to predict what actions the people in the story should take to survive.
