Parks hosts clinic to teach survival skills


The Tyler Parks and Recreation Outdoor Education series is hosting an event that will teach participants what to do if ever they are lost in a forest.

On Saturday, Jan. 28 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Tyler State Park, 789 Park Rd. 16, participants will participate in navigation demonstrations, learning to use a map and compass to avoid being lost. The group also will learn how to build a survival campfire and prepare a meal by cooking with a Dutch oven.

The program is free. Youth must be accompanied by an adult. Participants should wear sturdy shoes, bring water and be prepared for a mile hike through the forest.
