Looking for something outdoor-related and educational to do this winter? Mark your calendars for our 2019 Cabin Fever Sundays series! Three Sundays throughout the colder, wintry months, we will host a seminar for those itching to get some fresh air and learn more about an issue in which the Game Commission is involved.

Each of these events will take place at the Pennsylvania Game Commission Headquarters, located at 2001 Elmerton Ave. in Harrisburg, PA 17110. The doors will open at 12:30 p.m., and the presentations will begin at 1 p.m. and will each run about two hours in length.

Pennsylvania State Game Wardens will discuss basic survival methods, materials and equipment that will help you stay dry, warm and safe on an unexpected overnight in the Pennsylvania woods.
