Learn what you can do should you become lost or stranded in the backcountry. This course covers general backcountry safety, seven principles of survival, shelters, signaling, water and food procurement, navigation, and fire starting, as well as nature observation skills and local natural history. Everyone's pace and desire to "rough it" will be respected as we delve into the natural world. Includes day trips and one weekend overnight trip which will build your confidence to do more with less. Build a one-match fire, spend the night in a "debris" shelter, travel cross-country, and signal long distance without electronics!

When Offered Fall, Spring.

Fees Course fee: $290.
