This is a group for women and those that identify as female or gender fluid, who want to feel more empowered and secure particularly in the outdoors. We will support and empower each other in skills like: choosing, sharpening, and maintaining a knife, knot tying, shelter building, fire building, finding and purifying water, emergency signaling skills, map and compass use, natural navigation and movement techniques, preparing survival kits and bug-out bags for emergency situations, and other such skills. We will also share our stories and how we have come through the pain and rough times in our lives. This is a group about survival, in the past and in our future as strong capable women. These Meetups will have both free lectures and paid classes.
