About the event

Learning to survive, and truly thrive, without the support of modern amenities is what rewilding is all about. In the event of a cold-weather wilderness emergency, meeting basic needs for shelter, water, fire, and food becomes imperative. Humans throughout history, in cold-weather climes, developed a myriad of skills that allowed them to make hearty use of winter's harshest elements.

Space in this class is limited. Preregistration is required to reserve a spot in the class. The class will begin promptly at the scheduled time. Please plan accordingly. If you know you can't attend class, a quick phone call or email is appreciated so we can make the spot available to other students. Contact Rewild Maine at (207) 449-7738 or if you have any questions.

NOTE: This class will be held entirely outdoors, and will only be canceled in the event of a severe snowstorm. Please dress appropriately.

We depend on donations from the community to offer free classes and workshops and we are grateful for your support.
