Ages 10 and older won’t want to miss Jim Conley of Conley Backwoods Skills when he comes to the Syracuse Public Library to teach his “Call of the Wild Youth Outdoors Skills Course.”
From 2-4 p.m. Friday, June 16, Conley will teach a variety of outdoor and survival skills depicted in some of the world’s best-selling outdoor-themed books, such as “Call of the Wild,” “The Hunger Games” and “Hatchet.”
From survival shelters and trail markers to rescue signals and knot tying, students will spend time outside learning outdoor skills. Conley shared, "I love reading and teaching outdoor skills and this course is a great way to engage kids with nature and books at the same time!"
