Event description

Description

The ultimate goal of survival training is to prevent survival situ-ations from occurring in the first place. However, when survival is unavoidable, mindset, skills and improvisation are key. Learn the essential considerations needed to safely explore the some-times harsh and often challenging desert landscape of Joshua Tree National Park. This workshop will provide an introduction to the fundamental thought processes, skills and knowledge needed to survive in desert regions and the hazards associated with desert travel.
After a 1.5 hour presentation on desert survival, we will have a dinner break. After the dinner break, we will travel into the park to the trail head where we will hike under a moon. The hike is approximately 2 miles round trip.
