Women's Outdoor Survival Classes Coming in May!

In May, Resiliency Training will feature four different days for women only to learn outdoor survival skills. The classes will take place at May 11, 12, 18 and 19th. They will run from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm and take place at Grobschmidt Park in Franklin. Grobschmidt Park is a perfect environment to learn survival skills. It contains approximately 154 acres of planted prairie, oak-hickory woodland, sedge meadow, and a six-acre pond with beaver. Grobschmidt Park is an area formerly used by Native Americans and is virtually undeveloped except for the park sign and walking trail. Birds you might encounter here include Red-winged Blackbird, Woodcock, Northern Flicker, Osprey, Brown thrasher, Catbird, Northern Cardinal, Eastern Kingbird, Green Heron, Tree Swallow, and Sora rail. The park also provides great opportunities for viewing dragonflies and butterflies.

The class will be limited to 8 participants to maximize the one on one learning potential. No previous camping or wilderness experience necessary. Participants will practice starting a matchless fire, building a shelter, collecting and purifing water, creating and using a paracord bracelet, identifing and using survival plants and making cordage from plant material. The costs will be $75 per person or 2 for $120. Includes lunch, refreshments, and materials.

  1. Unique Outdoor Survival Skills

    Don't you find it ironic that even with all this scandalously expensive education, people today know so little?

    If they can't even fix their car, how are they supposed to handle a - let's say - long term food shortage?

    You can't possibly hope they'd know how to garden and produce their own food, save seeds for next year, and use leaves plowed under to fertilize the soil.

    Not to mention trapping, catching, skinning and cooking a rabbit...

    These may seem advanced outdoor survival skills now, but back in the days, they were merely called "Living".

    Watch this short video now and discover a set of unique and fantastic survival skills used and perfected by our ancestors.

    Don't wait for the next crisis to hit and live to regret you had the chance to learn these skills but didn't.
