Museum welcomes wilderness traveler

The Putnam County Museum invites the public to get back to nature with Jason Fajt, a local resident, who goes into the wilderness for a week every year, eating only that which he hunts or forages. Come to the Museum on Thursday, Nov. 4 at 7 p.m., to hear Fajt talk about his experience and survival tips on living off the land.

Fajt will immerse the audience in Native American lifestyle with his traditional clothes and authentic reproduction bows and arrows, which he makes himself and uses during his week in the wilderness. He will also bring deer hides he sleeps on and other items and tools he uses during his annual week in nature.

The event is free and open to guests of all ages.
