FIELD DAY at Koreshan State Park!

  • to
  • Koreshan State Park

    3800 Corkscrew Road, Estero, FL (map)

    26.431221 -81.810898

  • Campsite #17 in the northeastern corner of the campground. There is a $4 fee to enter the park for single visitors (or $5 per car for 2 - 8 people) so please plan to carpool if at all possible; that will also minimize any potential parking problems.
  • There is an outdoor classroom/presentation area that we may be able to use for at least some of our purposes - but we may need to use the campsite area also.

    The Schedule is As Follows:

    8:30 a.m. - 9:00 a.m.            Woods Tools - Knives, Camp Saws, and Axes

    9:00 a.m. - 10:00 a.m.          Fire Site Preparation and Fire Building Techniques

    10:00 a.m. - 11:00 a.m.         Unconventional Cooking Techniques & Simple Recipes

    11:00 a.m. - 11:30 a.m.           BRUNCH

    11:30 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.          Poisonous Reptiles, Insects, and Plants Identification

    12:00 p.m. - 1:00 p.m.           Field Sanitation and Basic Emergency First Aid

    Please RSVP for this event so we will know how many to plan for, especially for the brunch.  The park doesn't open until 8:30 a.m. so please be on site and ready for the gate to open as our time is very limited.  We will almost certainly have to adjust the above schedule to account for a later start time than indicated and also to accommodate individual segments which may run longer or shorter than anticipated.  If you feel confident to serve or assist as an instructor on any of the above topics please let me know as we can use all of the help we can get - so please don't hesitate to volunteer.  Remember, "many hands make light work."

    I look forward to seeing you all there - please RSVP as soon as possible.  Thanks!!

    Since the silence is deafening I'm going to cancel this event while I can still get a refund on the campsite.

    Our next regular meeting is still scheduled for 2 pm on Saturday, May 17, at Lakes Regional Library.
