The Family Activities Committee of the Tacoma Mountaineers is hosting a session to educate families about child safety in the outdoors.
The class will be 1:30-3 p.m. March 20.
“Hug A Tree and Survive” is a program sponsored by the National Association for Search and Rescue. It has been used to teach outdoor survival skills to children in the United States and Canada for almost 30 years.
The program is designed to teach parents and children in kindergarten through sixth grade how not to become lost in the woods, what to do if a child does become lost, how not to come to harm and how a lost child can help searchers find them.
The presenter, Roger Ternes, is a member of the Tacoma Mountaineers and Tacoma Mountain Search & Rescue.
The session will be at the Tacoma Mountaineers Clubhouse, 2302 N. 30th St., Tacoma. Admission is free.
