Survival workshop to be presented at Starved Rock State Park

Posted by wlpo on November 4, 2011

Ever wondered what it would be like to live and survive off the land?  You can learn survival tools this weekend at Starved Rock State Park.

They’re holding workshops on Saturday and Sunday.  Starved Rock Activities Director Edna Daugherty says they’ll make this an annual event.

A fan of reality survival shows, Daugherty is especially looking forward to seeing how to set traps and snares.

You’ll also learn how to start a fire, identify edible and medicinal plants and practice primitive hunting by throwing sticks.  The workshops will be from 10am until 3pm Saturday and Sunday.
