Add to Calendar 2024-06-25 18:30:00 2024-06-25 19:30:00 America/New_York Survival Skills with Mark Warren Hampton Park Library -

This lecture covers the essential solutions to immediate needs for a person caught in an unexpected scenario of staying overnight(s) in the woods or broken down in a remote area while on a car trip. Rather than describing the ultimate “survival kit” of technological materials, this program is about using what is a available in the forest and field. In other words, “primitive survival” versus “hi-tech survival.” Subjects addressed are: shelter, fire, wild foods, water sources and purification, insect repellents, itch and bite and sting remedies, plants medicines, hunting, and trapping.
