LEHMAN TOWNSHIP, DINGMAN'S FERRY, PA - The Pocono Environmental Education Center (PEEC) will present “Lenape of the Eastern Woodland” on Saturday, December 1, 2012 from 1:00-3:00pm. 
 
Mike Dennis of Traditional Earth Skills will teach participants about the day-to-day activities of the Lenape culture.  The food, clothing, and shelter of the local hunter gatherers will be presented, along with handmade artifacts.  The program is $20 per person and pre-registration is requested. 
 
In 1998, Mike Dennis began an intensive study of native wilderness skills and botany. Within a year of beginning courses at the Tracker school, Mike started working on the Indian Island of Waterloo Village. There tourists were able to benefit from Mike's knowledge and skills.  In 2005 Mike took all of his woodworking knowledge to Spokane Washington where he built his first birch bark canoe.
 
Traditional Earth Skills offers a variety of living history as well as wilderness skills workshops and presentations.  These programs are combined with a genuine concern for recent climate changes occurring world-wide, ultimately hoping to create solutions we can all live with.
