EVENT DETAIL

Wolf Ridge: Primitive Fire Building

4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Come join a Wolf Ridge ELC naturalist at the campfire to learn how to build a campfire and safely light it. See examples of kinds and sizes of wood needed to get a fire started. While enjoying s’mores at the campfire try your hand at starting a small piece of birch bark on fire on a firepan. You and your family (children must be 10 years and older) can attempt to light birch bark via Bow and Drill, Flint and Steel, or Match Strike.  Materials will be wiped with alcohol after each use. Mask wearing and social distancing will be observed.

Age Limit: 10+
