Waste Not, Want Not: Fire Starting

January 29 | 12:00 pm 1:30 pm

1215 Roberts Ave
Immokalee, FL 34142 United States
(239) 252-2611

While the Roberts family and the early pioneers of Florida might have had access to matches, in many cases the ability to start fires came from traditional means. Join us at Roberts Ranch for an introduction to primitive fire-starting methods. Museum staff will demonstrate traditional flint and steel methods, bow drill methods, and char-cloth production methods.
