2012 IGLOO Building Courses at Delta Marsh Field Station – SOLD OUT!

Maple Leaf Survival will be Co-Instructing two weekend IGLOO building courses this February 2012 at the Delta Marsh Field Station.

“The Delta Marsh Field Station, a research and teaching facility of the Faculty of Science at the University of Manitoba (Winnipeg, Canada), is located on the south shore of Lake Manitoba (98°23’W, 50°11’N). It borders Delta Marsh, a “Wetland of International Significance” under the Ramsar Convention, that is one of the largest lacustrine marshes in North America.”

“The course is designed for travelers and persons whose occupations expose them to winter Arctic conditions and winter camping enthusiasts.  It is also designed for persons wishing to become more aware of northern sociological and environmental issues.  Techniques of winter survival will be examined through field work, lectures, group discussions, slide presentations and films.

Personal survival kits for the northern travelers will be discussed as well as survival for persons in downed aircraft.  All participants will build their own Inuit igloo, and time permitting, the Athabaskan Quinzhee.  Participants will also have the opportunity to try out Inuit-made winter clothing.”
