Wilderness Camping Program

May 27 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Have you ever thought about camping deep in the wilderness, really roughing it, but you’re a little intimidated by the prospect?  If so, the Winnebago County Conservation Board invites you to meet at the Thorpe Park shelter house on Friday evening, May 27 th , from 7:00-8:00 PM to learn how to plan and enjoy a wilderness camping trip! (Thorpe Park is located five miles west of Forest City on “I”/345 th Street.)

During the program, Winnebago County Naturalist Lisa Ralls will discuss how wilderness camping is different than traditional camping and why people choose to do it. She will illustrate how to plan a wilderness trip, what equipment to bring, how to cook food, and how to stay safe. And, she will also demonstrate some of the equipment that is used. In addition, there will be a time for questions and answers and there will be handouts available for people to take home with them.

The program will be free and open to the public, and there will be no need to preregister.

For more information, people can contact Lisa Ralls at either 641-565-3390 or at lralls@winnebagoccb.com.
