Outdoor Skills Workshops at the Library for Tweens and Teens on June 20



Fargo, North Dakota – The Call of the Wild: Outdoor Skills for Tweens and Teens activities at the Fargo Public Library are open to local tweens and teens the following week.

The Dr. James Carlson Library, 2801 32nd Ave. S., will host the first session at 10 a.m. on Tuesday, June 20, and the downtown Main Library, 101 4th St. N., will host the second session at 2 p.m.

The lessons will be led by outdoor skills instructor Jesse Simenson, who will demonstrate how to survive in the wild outdoors using the same techniques as the characters in some beloved books. Participants will pick up skills such as how to tie Buck’s No. 1 Call of the Wild rescue knot, build a survival shelter like Brian in Hatchet, construct a survival trap like Katniss in The Hunger Games, and much more.

The two-hour seminars are free of charge. Children between the ages of 10 and 15 are welcome, and all supplies will be given. There is a cap on space, so registration is necessary. Call the Children’s Services Department at 701.241.1495 or register online at

The Fargo Public Library Friends are funding these events.

Events at the Fargo Public Library are free and available to everyone.
