Winter Survival and Foraging Program

February 26 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm

$5 – $15

An interactive program on available winter food sources, as well as traditional processing and storing methods, in the Eastern Woodlands.

About This Event

Would you have what it takes to thrive in the New England winters without twenty-first century technology? Perhaps you’ve wondered how Native Americans were able to start a fire in the snow, find food, or make shelter. This year, there will be a special focus on foraging, processing and storing available food sources during the winter. Come “chill” with Wigwam Escape Creative Director and Museum Educator Griffin Kalin for an interactive and informative outdoor program, appropriate for all ages.

As this is an outdoor event, please dress appropriately for the weather. Masks are required inside the museum until further notice.

Price of Participation

$15 for Non-Members, $5 for Members. Materials included. Space per session is limited and pre-registration is required.
