Would you know what to do if you were dropped in the middle of the woods, desert or mountains?
For most people, the answer is no, but Bays Mountain Park’s Outdoor Survival Basics series is your opportunity to learn how to adapt to the rough conditions of the outdoors for free!
The following survival classes will be held in the Discovery Theater at Bays Mountain Park from 1:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m.
• December 9th – “Bear Aware”
• December 16th – “Snake Bites”
• December 23rd – “What To Take Hiking?”
• December 30th – “Outdoor Survival Basics”
These free classes will cover the techniques a person should use in a dangerous situation to save themselves or others. The skills being discussed are meant to help someone who is lost by providing knowledge of the necessities for human life. This includes water, food and shelter, as well as the need to think straight, signal for help, navigate safely, avoid unpleasant interactions with animals and plants, and for first aid.
There is no charge to participate in the series, and participants can complete as many classes as they would like. Participants who attend all five classes will receive a certificate of completion. For more information please call 423-229-9447.
