What would you do if you found yourself lost in the woods?  Do you know how to build your own shelter, or start a fire without matches? What would you eat and where would you find water? Do you have what it takes to survive in the wild? The Urban Park Rangers are skilled in the techniques of wilderness survival and emergency preparedness. On these fun, family-friendly programs you will learn tips and tricks that will enhance your knowledge of the natural world, and might just save your life. Whether you are preparing for an extended journey through the woods or just want to be more prepared for any situation, a wilderness survival program is perfect for you.

Wilderness survival programs feature hands-on activities in an outdoor setting. Emergency Preparedness provides families and individuals with helpful information on how to be ready when an emergency situation arises. All programs are family friendly, but are recommended for ages 8 years and older. Please dress appropriately for cold weather.
