Primitive Skills Society Presents Navigating the Land
ENC Executive Director Bo Glover to teach how to navigate the wilderness using a compass and the constellations
Newport Beach, Calif., June 19th, 2018 - The Environmental Nature Center (ENC) will be hosting the monthly meeting of the Primitive Skills Society on June 29th, 2018 from 5:30 – 8:30PM. During each monthly meeting participants gather to learn and work on different primitive skills, led by ENC Executive Director Bo Glover. Afterward, the group will cook a light meal over the campfire.
This meeting will focus on navigation. We live in a largely digital world where children and adults alike have become accustomed to using our cell phones and the internet to get around. Glover aims to teach members how to navigate without using our electronic devices.
Our ancestors had different resources and had to use the land as their guide. They learned how to utilize the stars to find their way and thrive. The Primitive Skills Society will help revive these methods and teach people how to survive and thrive in the wild.
“Learning primitive skills can literally save your life and those of your loved ones in an unplanned, crisis situation,” said Glover. “Learning these skills also builds confidence and self-esteem, and enhances awareness and appreciation of the landscapes around us. Primitive Skills Society members will feel a deeper connection to the land and to the plants and animals around them, just as their ancestors did.”
