Join Dan as he helps to uncover the skills necessary to survive during an emergency, even in the coldest conditions. We’ll explore the surrounding areas for food and medicine that can be utilized in a situation such as we saw with Hurricane Sandy. We’ll discover where and how to track and catalog medicinal foods, shelter items, utilitarian plants, and how to purify and acquire water from the landscape.

DRESS WARM - Layers of wool recommended

Bring a camera and notebook for recording the plants we find.

Meet at the Visitor Center Parking lot - Windeler Rd. Entrance. When you enter, go to the parking lot on the right and you’ll see the visitors center building.
