SUNY Delhi has teamed once again with The Arc of Delaware County to provide wonderful programs linking people from The Arc with college students. 5 adventurous classes revolving around the themes of ecology and nature are being held February 12th through May 7th. Participants will learn many survival skills including those focused on winter which include building shelters and fires, and having fun snowshoeing.

Future classes will include learning how to make cordage (rope) from forest vegetation, tapping maple trees and collecting sap, making maple syrup, preparing the Butterfly Garden at the SUNY EDU Center for spring and working on survival skills involving food and water. At the last class to be held on May 7th they will have a survival activity day to test the skills they learned.
