Put yourself in the shoes of South Georgia’s early settlers as you learn about what it took to survive in the wilds of the Red Hills region. Lance Farlow of Dark Horse Armory in Metcalfe, GA will lead this workshop on the grounds of the Thomasville History Center. Participants will utilize natural and man-made materials to learn how to design and construct three types of humane snare traps. Participants will forage on the History Center property for natural materials to construct their snares.
Participants do not need any previous training or trapping skills but should be comfortable using a machete, hatchet, and a knife. Participants should plan to bring their own tools and safety glasses to use throughout the workshop. Registration is open to all. Those under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian who has also registered for the workshop. Registration fees: $15, Members; $20, Non-Members. Please bring your own machete, hatchet, and knife to use during the workshop. If you are unable to bring these supplies, the History Center will have tools on hand for you to borrow. Please dress for safety in closed-toed shoes, long pants, hat, safety glasses, etc. Do not forget your bug spray and sunscreen!
