Join Backcountry Women for a Fire Building Skills Workshop. A good fire can keep you warm, cook your food, purify your water, provide a signal for help, and join us together as we roast marshmallows over a crackling fire at night.
In this workshop we'll learn the keys to a good fire, different methods of fire starting, gathering and preparing materials, lighting demos and lighting practice. We will learn Leave No Trace fire practice to ensure our fire practices protect the environment.
You will go home with the essential knowledge to build a fire and your own fire-starting kit with some of the tools we used to start our fires. Each kit contains high quality stormproof matches along with waterproof fire starter tinder and match strikers, all packaged in a quality reusable + waterproof case!
Location: Bird's Hill Provincial Park (Details will be sent in a reminder email)
Time: Please arrive at 6:15pm. We will begin promptly at 6:30pm
Bring: Warm, layered clothing, a Manitoba Parks pass (purchased online if you do not have one), camp chair, snacks and other personal items.
NOTE: in the event of rain, this event will be postponed and we will issue a rain date.
