New for 2015 - Safe in the Woods Interactive Course

Interactive Course: “Safe in the Woods”
New for 2015!
            Based on our best-selling book, Safe in the WoodsTips, Techniques and Advice for Safety and Survival, this interactive course is appropriate for adults 16 and above. There is no time limit so students can work on it at their leisure. In 20 simple and easy-to-follow lesson plans students will learn how to plan for an outing, how to dress and what equipment to carry and what to do if they encounter “critters” out there in the woods. Although the planning and preparation for your outing should keep you out of trouble, there are tips on what to do when things go wrong from injuries, to what to do if you lose the trail. Upon signing up for the course you will receive a copy of the book, Safe in the Woods (a $20 value itself), a lesson plan log and directions on how to complete the course. All of that will be in hard copy as well as on a CD with three hours of Powerpoint review topics and information. Along the way I will personally be available to answer any questions you may have about any aspect of the course by email or phone. If you choose to take the Final Exam (optional) you can earn a Certificate of Completion which will be issued and sent to you by mail.
            The total cost for this interactive course is $50.00 per student. It includes all materials and all shipping charges. You can simply “Add it to Your Cart” online at:  and register and pay with a credit card via PayPal.

Seminar - How to be Safe in the Woods - January 24th, 2015

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.)  J  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.)
