Twine and Cordage - Surviving the Zombie Apocalypse

Tettegouche State Park Visitor’s Center | Silver Bay MN

What will you do to survive the Zombie Apocalypse (or other unplanned disaster)?

Twine, cordage, and rope could come in handy, but if you don’t have any you may need to make your own.

We’ll explore some natural fibers and we will also be using salvaged materials to make our own strong and sturdy ropes. Everyone will go home with homemade rope!

To register, send an email to [email protected] and tell us how many people will be coming. There is limited space in this hands-on program.

Children are welcome if accompanied by an adult!
