Wilderness Hacks Workshop at Old Pine Farm Natural Lands TrustOct 02, 2020 02:11PM ● By Michelle Vacanti
Join Freddie Patane at Old Pine Farm Natural Lands Trust on October 18 at 2 p.m. for fun tips and demonstrations on how to make time outdoors safer and more enjoyable—part of their Walk in the Wild series.
A wide range of topics will be covered including camping essentials, land navigation, budget gear and emergency preparedness. The workshop is designed for beginners and will be held outside. Participants will even have an opportunity to make some tasty treats around the campfire.
Patane has led workshops on subjects such as making rope from natural material, bow and arrow safety and bushcraft. He is a lifelong resident of South Jersey and works in media production. His enthusiasm for wilderness skills and primitive crafts has led him to train with world-class primitive archers, survival instructors and some of the United States’ top blacksmiths. He’s happiest when capturing photos with his vintage film cameras, working on backyard projects and celebrating his artistic mishaps with like-minded souls.
Participants are asked to wear a face cover, practice social distancing and meet at the Willoughby House at the end of Pine Avenue, off Good Intent Road, in Blackwood Terrace. Carpooling is recommended.
Cost: Free. Location: 340 Pine Ave., Deptford. For more information and questions, call Joan Tracy at 856-340-3208. Visit Facebook for potential changes and directions.
