Survive the night: Of all the outdoors seminars offered throughout the area, here's one every hiker, hunter and angler will find useful.

PPL's Martins Creek Environmental Preserve is holding a nighttime survival course 1:30-3 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 12. Fred Gast, PPL's naturalist, will cover a variety of topics, including what to do when you are delayed from leaving the woods or trails by injury or becoming lost. Making shelter, fire, finding food and safe water and administering first aid are all on the agenda.

To register, contact PPL at 570-251-6196 or e-mail [email protected].

Planning for an Unplanned Night in the Woods

This skills-based program is for hunters, hikers, Scouts and anyone who spends time in the outdoors. Shelter, fire, first aid, food and water will be discussed. Please dress for the weather. To register, contact PPL at 570-251-6196 or [email protected].

Buy a Boy Scout manual. It contains allot of useful camping and survival info. I was involved in Scouting growing up and learned a lot about camping, backpacking, and wilderness survival in Scouts.

Yes I went, It was pretty good. It was geared mostly toward day hikers that get lost and need to spend one unexpected night in the PA woods.
