Bays Mountain Park brings another installment in its popular Survival Series to outdoor enthusiasts of all skill levels this February.

The four-week Survival Series is designed to provide participants the information they need to take care of themselves and others while spending time outdoors, whether that be at Bays Mountain Park or any other outdoor destination. This series will help ensure that attendees feel prepared and safe when stepping outside.

Each Saturday in February at 1 p.m., guests will gather with Park staff in the Nature Center’s Discovery Theater to learn about a different outdoor survival topic.

“Hiking with a Dog” on February 2 will ensure that everyone knows how to care for our four-legged friends both on Bays Mountain Park’s 39 miles of trail and other outdoor locations ideal for sharing time with man’s best friend. On February 9, “Emergency Shelters,” will teach guests what to do if they ever find themselves in a situation where they unexpectedly have to spend the night outdoors. On February 16 guests will learn about “Trail Etiquette,” covering themes such as who yields to whom, when to use the trails, and more. The last session of the series on February 23, “Winter Survival,” focuses on how to stay warm and well-nourished while enjoying the trails in the wintertime.

Park guests can purchase tickets for the Survival Series the day of the event at the Nature Center gift shop for $3 per person. Tickets for Park Association members are free (must show pass at gift shop). Guests who attend all four sessions will receive a certificate of participation.
