Join Darke County Parks to re-learn the crucial and very basic skill of fire starting without matches. On Thursday October 20th at 6pm the parks welcome Rob Simpson of the local Canteen Shop back to Shawnee Prairie Preserve for this hands-on workshop. During the program, he will introduce a variety of techniques for starting fire and how to use them. Fire plays an important role in outdoor life. Whether it’s a planned overnight or an emergency; don’t be left out in the cold! This program will take place rain or shine. Registration is required for this free event. Call the nature center at (937) 548-0165 to reserve your spot today.
Did you know? Things like a ferrous rod, char-cloth, or even a magnifying glass can help start a fire when matches are scarce.
