PD Outback Survival Course: Bob Cooper

Date: 03-May-2019

Details

Course Date: Friday 3rd May - Sunday 5th May

Location: Chidlow

Price: $695

Duration: 3 days

Description: Many irrational fears cloud people’s engagement with our wilderness – even in the bushlands of suburbia. The fear of snakes, spiders, becoming lost and being alone are all acquired fears. Survival skills can replace fear with respect for, and trust in, nature. Such knowledge enables people to walk freely and feel safer in our natural environment. As a society we need to recapture the survival skills and empathy with nature which our ancestors instinctively knew. True appreciation and understanding of our natural environment may be the only factor that saves it, and, on occasions, us.
