Desert survival and safety classes offered at Superstition Mountain Museum

Posted

For anyone living or recreating in the Sonoran desert, a desert survival and safety class being offered at the Superstition Mountain Museum on several dates this season might be one of the most important classes that you have ever taken.

“Anyone who hikes or camps should be particularly interested, because you can learn about surviving in almost any situation,” according to a release.

Teacher John Jay Pelletier is a former Army Green Beret survival instructor and an active outdoorsman. In this class, he teaches attendees important tips about surviving in just about any situation. Learn what Mr. Pelletier packs in his own backpack.

The next class will be held on Saturday, Nov. 7. The class runs from 9 a.m. until noon in the amphitheater, so attendees are urged to bring a comfortable chair, a hat and water.

The $30 class fee includes a special survival kit for backpacks with just about everything one would need to survive in most situations in the desert and a copy of his survival booklet.

The class will also be held Dec. 5; and in 2021, on Jan. 2, Feb. 6, March 6 and April 3.

Prior registration and payment is required. Go to superstitionmountainmuseum.org or stop by the museum gift shop to register. The museum is at 4087 N. Apache Trail (State Route 88). Call 480-983-4888.
