The Jurica-Suchy Nature Museum is proud to host the 4th annual 'What 2 Know B4 You Go!' program. This program is designed specifically for families with youngsters, and for individuals with limited experience in the outdoors. The content applies to just about any endeavor that can take you into the natural world: hiking, biking, canoeing, kayaking, snowshoeing, skiing, rafting, or simply driving a car through a remote area.

The presentation includes story-telling, both true and hypothetical, with plenty of examples and hands-on demonstrations. Skills that will be covered in this program include building a simple shelter and how to use flint-and-steel. The instructor will also share a list of 6 essential items for a personal survival kit. These items are lightweight, relatively inexpensive and could turn an outdoor emergency into a mere inconvenience. Each person at the workshop will receive 2 of the 6 items FREE! Other select items will be available for purchase at the conclusion of the program.

This program is intended for adults and children 10 years of age and older. All children must be accompanied by an adult. Dress for the weather as part of the program is held outdoors. Participants will be asked to sign a photography waiver for museum promotional materials.
