The Cottonwood Institute primarily works with schools and community organizations to connect young people with the outdoors, and Church has made teaching basic survival skills a top priority: We want people to connect with the outdoors and have some great ad-ventures. We also want them to be safe and come back!
Tonight at 7 p.m., the Cottonwood Institute presents a free all-ages workshop on 3-Season Survival Skills at the REI Denver flagship store, 1416 Platte Street.
With the changing of the seasons, this is an interesting time of year for survival situations in Colorado, Church says. You could go from forest-fire risk on one day to heavy snow on the next. Well go through some interactive survival scenarios, evaluate key survival priorities and show you a few simple things you can carry in your personal survival kit to keep you from making headlines.
