Nicolet College - Wilderness skills class Nov. 15, 16 at Nicolet

Wilderness skills class
Nov. 15, 16 at Nicolet College


One of North America's foremost wilderness skills and survival experts will teach the two-day class Basic Bush Survival Saturday and Sunday, Nov. 15 and 16 on Nicolet College's Rhinelander campus.

Mors Kochanski, from Alberta, Canada, will cover all the major aspects of wilderness living, concentrating on how to stay warm, fed, hydrated, safe and most importantly - alive.

"The class is for anyone with a passion for the outdoors," says Kochinski, former faculty member at the University of Alberta and author of Bushcraft, considered one of the definitive wilderness skills and living guides.

The hands-on class will run from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day in Nicolet's Northwoods Center Dining Room on the Rhinelander campus. Cost is $180. This includes the materials each student will use to create their own survival kit, weighing less than five pounds.

"Hunters, paddlers, hikers and campers all spend time out in the wilds," Kochanski explains. "The skills taught in this class will help all of these individuals learn the essentials of wilderness living and survival."
