Themed weekend: survival in nature
How to survive in nature if you get lost without any equipment and your mobile phone is out of signal? The visitors of our themed Sunday learned some survival skills at the LIFE workshop with Laris Žurga. The weather on Lake Cerknica was also favorable for them, although they had to know that in the wilde, you have to know how to survive in any weather.
An experienced instructor of survival in nature took them into the woods by Lake Cerknica to teach them how to find food and prepare a nutritious meal from what nature has to offer. They have learned how to make a rope out of nettles, how to make a stable and safe bivouac shelter (without purchased equipment, such as a rope), how to light a fire with a firecracker, how to hide from danger, which plants are edible and how to orient in the forest. At the end, each participant of the trip received practical gift, then they were taken back to the starting point by a horse-drawn carriage.
All guided tours of themed weekends are free of charge for participants, as it is funded by the LIFE Stržen project.
