How to be Safe in the Woods Seminar

On Saturday evening, January 24, 2015 from 7:00 to 9:30 pm Author and Master Naturalist Roger Fulton will present a seminar on How to be Safe in the Woods. The seminar is based on his newest book of the same name. In a series of Powerpoint presentations, he will cover the basics of how to explore natural areas in Florida and elsewhere safely, from the Cascade Mountains to the Florida swamps. So whether you are out for a short hike, a photo shoot of wildlife or a more adventurous outing, this presentation could help you, and others with you, to prevent serious problems and return home safe and happy. “No problems” doesn’t happen accidentally! Topics include what you need to be prepared to go out into the woods, how to read trail markings, and what to do if you encounter an alligator, a bear or other natives of Florida. He will even guide you on what to do if you get disoriented or lost.
Your price of admission to this 2 ½ hour seminar is to bring with you a copy of Roger Fulton’s newest book titled, Safe in the Woods – Tips, Techniques and Advice for Safety and Survival. ($19.95) If you already have a copy, just make a reservation and show up with the book in hand. If you need a copy you can obtain one locally from the store at Hontoon Island State Park in Deland, online at or  or make arrangements with Roger to pay for one by mail or at the door. In any case, please make a reservation so we can plan ahead for a comfortable and successful seminar.
(And I am told that the World of Beer is next door to the seminar location. Some of us may want to de-seminarize afterward.)   Contact point for Roger and reservations is at: or through his website at:  The seminar location will be at: Keller Williams Realty, 3510 S. Nova Rd., Suite 112, Port Orange, FL 32129. (In the new Tuscan Village Shoppes between Madeline Avenue and Herbert Street.)
This will likely be the only session presented this winter in Florida, so make your reservation soon and we look forward to seeing you there!
