Mountain Rescue Team’s Matthew Silverio to share winter camping tips

Event has passed

LINCOLNVILLE — Matthew Silverio, chief of Northeast Mobile Health Service’s Mountain Rescue Team, will give a free presentation on how to stay safe and comfortable while winter camping, Wednesday, Dec. 4, at 7 p.m., at the Lincolnville Community Library.

Silverio will talk about proper layering of clothing, moisture management, and essential things to carry along for recreating outside in winter. He will also tell what people should do when lost or injured in the wilderness and how the search and rescue response teams work in Maine.

In addition to leading the Mountain Rescue Team, he is a member of Pine Tree Search and Rescue.

Silverio has been camping, skiing, climbing, paddling, and running in the Maine woods for more than thirty years. Having spent many nights outside during the winter, he said he sometimes enjoys camping in that season more than in the summer, according to the Library, in a news release.

The library is at 208 Main Street in Lincolnville Center.
