Outdoor Skills for Kids: Fire by Friction

Saturday, October 21st, 10am-12pm

Kids ages 10 to 16 are invited to come and learn how our ancestors made fire by 'rubbing two sticks together.' Participants learn the basics of how both bow and and hand drills are made, and put together their own hand drill kits. We'll also cover fire safety and how to succeed in making a 'one-match fire.' Registration is required by October 18th to ensure we have enough supplies. Space limitied to 10 participants. Register online at or call 815-335-2915.
