Pop-up Program: Intro to Fire-Crafts

Contact Information

Description

Join our Roving Naturalist for a FREE pop-up program to learn about the history and many survival uses of fire in a family-friendly setting! 

Participants will discuss tips to safely build your best campfire. There will be several examples of fire starting techniques, including char-cloth uses and friction fires, with on-site demonstrations. Though this event is for ALL ages, participants ages 8 and up will have a chance to make a spoon (with parent supervision) using a process called coal-burning. Craft supplies are limited to the first 15 participants.

Participants will meet at the Lower Cascades Park, Sycamore Shelter. This is an outdoor event, so please dress for the weather.

Please note that the road through Lower Cascades Park is closed to motorized vehicles during the pilot road conversion project. Access to the parking lots at the Sycamore Shelter, at the intersection of Clubhouse Drive and Old SR 37 N, and at both the north and south ends of the playground will remain open. The road is only closed between the Lower Cascades Park playground and the IMI quarry entrance; bicycle, pedestrian, and other non-motorized vehicles only are allowed on this southern section of the road.

Learn more about the pilot road conversion project, and find a link to leave your feedback via an online survey, on the Lower Cascades Park Road Conversion Project web page.https://bloomington.in.gov/parks/lower-cascades-road

FREE program for ALL ages. Children under 12 need to be accompanied by an adult.
