10am-noon :: Primitive Fire Starting – drop-in event
Without matches, lighter, or other modern tools, most of us would be in big trouble if we needed to light a fire. Learn traditional and historic fire starting technologies. We?ll be playing with flint-and-steel, bow drills, magnifiers, and other techniques including the use of native mushrooms and fungi to aid in your efforts.
