Winter Skills: Well Dressed & Unafraid
Saturday, January 20, 2018
10-11 am
Pike’s Peak State Park

Be prepared! Clayton County Conservation, sponsored by the McGregor Marquette Chamber of Commerce will hold a primitive skills workshop from 10-11 am on Saturday, January 20th at Pike’s Peak State Park. “Well Dressed and Unafraid” will give participants an opportunity to grow their survival skills heading into the new year by learning primitive methods for fire building, shelter making, acquiring food, and general winter survival safety lessons.
This workshop will offer not only practical skills, but a chance to reconnect with our shared history by learning how humans have survived Iowa’s unforgiving winters for thousands of years.
The free program will take place outside, so attendees should dress accordingly. We will cancel in the event of overly hazardous weather. All ages welcome.
