Hone your sense of direction as you home in on our island wilderness. Join us as we orient ourselves at the Millard Learning Centre, with its 80 acres of mature coastal forest and two kilometers of waterfront. We’ll master navigation, compass and map-reading skills to find Galiano Island’s ecological treasures. And, we will get hands-on with basic survival skills such as fire making, shelter building and knot-tying. For the grand finale we will gain a sense of place (and more survival skills) through identifying native edible plants.
It’s a day full of nature-based outdoor learning, as we work together to master low-tech, high-fun, potentially life-saving skills. Unforgettable.
Suitable for groups with young people age 12 and up.
