About This Learning Event

Wonder Well in the redwoods as you engage in Lunch & Learn at 1440 Multiversity, a new offering designed to help you find inspiration out of curiosity.

Join 1440 Experience Instructor and local professor Gary Marcoccia for Wilderness Survival, a fun hands-on class that is a great first step in developing wilderness self-reliance skills. Beginners will receive a practical primer so that they feel confident and comfortable in the backcountry, and a typical course includes survival mindset; building a natural shelter; finding and purifying water; foraging for wild foods; how to prevent and prepare for common wilderness predicaments; and more. Following this engaging experience, dine on a delicious, sustainable and locally sourced lunch at Kitchen Table featuring global cuisine prepared by our 1440 Culinary Team.

Deeply nourishing and highly enjoyable, Lunch & Learn at 1440 provides a fulfilling opportunity to connect with yourself and other like-hearted community members while creating hope for living well.
