A gorgeous, sunny morning begs you to come out to a backwoods area you’ve never visited before. As the morning turns to afternoon, the clear blue skies turn cloudy and colder.
On your way back, you discover that the log at your feet is the same one you passed a half-hour ago…or is it? Do you know where you are? You wish you had checked in with a friend or relative prior to hitting the trail. Would you know what to do? Would you know how to do it?
John James Audubon State Park Naturalist Julie McDonald will lead a three-hour program on wilderness survival for young people, ages 10-16, on March 17 from noon-3 p.m., departing from the Audubon Museum in Henderson.
