Primitive Fire ― History in Action

12:30p to 1:30p
Sat, November 23, 2019
Jared Shamburger
(936) 687-2394

Watch a ranger start a fire with just sticks and sweat and make your own tinder nest!

Have you ever wondered why your kindling wouldn’t catch? Have you ever cheated and used lighter fluid to get your campfire started? Leave that in the past by travelling back to the past.

- Learn the tried and true methods of starting a fire, backed by thousands of years of success!

- Together we’ll all find a new appreciation for fire. We’ll learn what good tinder can be found here in the Pineywoods and how to build a successful nest from natural materials.

- Put your instincts and ancient science skills to the test and see if you can build a successful nest for Ranger Jared to put up in smoke!

- See how hard those before us worked to master it, and how its importance in the past mirrors its importance today.

Bring water, appropriate clothing and footwear for the outdoors, mosquito spray, and be ready to leave with a new appreciation for your campfire.

Meet at the Festival Grounds!
