Outdoor Skills: Fire by Friction

October 21, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

$5 - $10

Kids ages 10 to 16 years are invited to come and learn how our ancestors made fire by “rubbing two sticks together.”  Participants learn the basics of how both bow and hand drills are made, and put together their own hand-drill kits.  We’ll also cover fire safety and how to succeed in making a “one-match fire.”

Registration required by Oct. 18; space limited to 10 participants. Cost $5 members/ $10 nonmembers.
