Texas Outdoor Survival Skills: Water Collection and Treatment

  • McKinney Roughs Nature Park 1884 State Hwy 71 W Cedar Creek, TX, 78612 USA (map)


Finding and treating water can become a priority in extended survival situations, and it can save your life if your unexpected wilderness experience ends up lasting several days. Learn how to utilize some of the most common tactics for locating and collecting water outdoors and how to use modern and primitive water treatment methods. McKinney Roughs Nature Park has over 1,100 acres of woods, springs and river frontage for us to practice searching for and capturing water in the outdoors. A variety of filtration and purification methods will be presented and hands-on practice with these methods will prepare you for the important task of creating potable water. This class is taught by survival experts from both REI and LCRA.
