Spring Equinox Fire Celebration and Craft

Contact Information

Description

Celebrate the arrival of spring and shake off winter with a fire and craft! Learn how to use tree identification to safely build your best campfire. There will be several examples of fire-starting techniques, including char cloth and a friction fire explanation and demonstration. Though this event is for all ages, participants age 8 yrs. and up will be able to make a spoon (with parent supervision) using a process called coal-burning.

Participants will meet in the Sycamore Shelter.

For ages 8+. Children under 12 need to be accompanied by a registered adult. To make sure we prepare enough materials for this program, we ask that all participants PLEASE REGISTER by April 19th. You can do so by following the link on this page or by calling the Parks & Rec Dept directly. Thank you!
