Modern Survival: Wilderness Skills Workshop Free NRWA Series

This workshop is the second in a series of free primitive survival skills workshops being offered by the Nashua River Wa- tershed Association. The “Modern Survival: Wilderness Skills Workshop” will be presented on Sunday, November 10, 2019, from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m., at a conservation property in Groton. The program will be led by Primitive Survival Skills Instructor Tim Swanson.
     Using manufactured survival gear, Tim will lead this workshop on the basics of survival in the woods. We will start fires, build a shelter, signal for rescue, boil water, use a compass, and learn how to dress properly so that we will be prepared for our next adventure! Tim has an incredible depth of knowledge about outdoor survival and of our local ecosystems. His philosophy is based on harmony with nature, adaptation to adverse situations, and becoming a more resilient human being in the natural world. This program is appropriate for adults, and for children ages 10 and up accompanied by a parent. You do not need to have attended the first workshop to attend this program.
     This free series is supported in part by a grant from the Gro- ton Trust Funds Lecture Fund. Pre-registration is required; space is limited. To pre-register, please call the NRWA at (978) 448-0299 or email WynneT@NashuaRiv- When registering, please indicate the number of individuals attending, and the ages of any children planning to attend.
