Survival Series: Fire Starting
Brothers Ed and Fran Baranski have been wandering into the wilderness for years, building their own canoes, doing some rigorous camping, and just learning how to survive in nature by their own skill. Now, they want to teach you some of the skills they’ve learned.
The brothers return for the next step in surviving. Staying warm in the winter is crucial and the brothers will show you how to start and maintain a fire during the winter. They will be demonstrating techniques at the fire pit at Goodwin’s campsite. Dress to be outdoors. Age 12 and up.
This event is jointly sponsored by the Connecticut Forest & Park Association (CFPA), Connecticut Department of Energy & Environmental Protection (CT DEEP) Division of Parks, and Friends of Goodwin Forest.
