White Pine Hosts Wild Soup Fundraiser and Open House
The White Pine Wilderness Academy, in Indianapolis, is hosting a fundraiser at their open house event with many informative and fun activities and a silent auction from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on April 10 to support the classes and children’s camp that they conduct.
The event is open to all ages, and participants can learn about upcoming classes and view demonstrations that display the primitive outdoor skills taught at White Pine. Attendees will enjoy meals of soup while exploring examples of previous class work. The silent auction will offer gift certificates and White Pine merchandise.
The academy teaches primitive outdoor skills to adults and kids. The kid’s summer camp curriculum includes interactive topics, such as wild foraging, tracking, environmental education through primitive technology, bow building, how to make shelters, start fires, and bird language.
During April, a free class will be featured every Monday evening, with a presentation to highlight different skills that the academy addresses in their classes, and also providing the opportunity for newcomers to ask questions and learn the basics of primitive skills.
Admission: free, $5 suggested donation per soup bowl. Location: 841 W. 53rd St, Indianapolis. For more information, visit WhitePineWilderness.com.
