“Introduction to the Basics of Survival” workshop
October 22, 9 a.m.–1 p.m.
On Saturday, October 22, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., Fort Towson Historic Site will host “Introduction to the Basics of Survival,” a workshop facilitated by Todd Branda.
Todd Branda, a veteran and McCurtain County medical transport pilot, will lead the class. He will provide valuable information about applying first aid, locating water, reading a compass, navigating toward safety, building shelters, starting fires, and signaling for help. Branda’s perspective and training make him an ideal candidate to teach others how to survive in unfortunate outdoor situations.
This event will take place outdoors. Participants should consider wearing closed-toed shoes (hiking boots or tennis shoes), long pants and long sleeves, a hat, sunscreen, insect repellent, and rain gear. They should also bring water, snacks, and some type of seating (a folding camp stool or camp chair).
Registration is required for this class, and the cost is $55 for adults. Children ages 12 to 17 can participate for free with a registered adult. The minimum age for the workshop is 12. For more information call 616-667-7228 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Fort Towson Historic Site is located north of U.S. 70 near Fort Towson.
