Primitive Fire Starting Course Saturday at Tettegouche State Park

Dec 16, 2018 09:19AM ● By Editor

From the MN DNR - December 16, 2018

Without matches, lighters, or other modern tools, most of us would be in big trouble if we needed a fire without them.

Learn traditional and historic fire starting technologies and try them out. We'll be playing with flint-and-steel, bow drills, magnifiers, and other techniques including the use of native mushrooms and fungi to aid in your efforts.

The free course will be offered Saturday, December 22 from 1 to 3 pm.  Meet for the drop in program at the fireplace behind the Visitor Center.  The Park is 5 miles northeast of Silver Bay on State Highway 61.
