Survival and bushcraft school opens in New River Gorge Region


Much of America's newest national park may be teeming with visitors this summer, but the vast areas of woodland beyond are likely to remain as untracked as ever, ideal for the region's newest venue for outdoor recreation—New River Survival and Bushcraft. 

Launched by some of West Virginia's most knowledgeable outdoorsmen, the wilderness-survival school has opened its tent-flaps at the rim of the New River Gorge National Park, an area that beckons to lovers of the outdoors, though students will learn far more than the average adventure tourist here, according to co-founder and instructor Josh Sapio.
