Ely Folk School Class: Winter Survival Skills

February 11 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

$20

This class will be largely information-based, covering the science, psychology, and sociology of survival. “The most important factor in survival is KNOWING what and why you NEED certain things. The how is dependent on the resources available and those are unknown until you find yourself in a survival situation.” The true needs of human survival and some of the challenges that the winter environment places on these needs will be discussed.  Cade will also go over some primitive skills  used to create  tools helpful in meeting those needs, such as debris and quinzy shelters, rope making by braiding and cordage, and fire by friction using the bow drill method.
