15 min.; K-8; Safety; Produced by: Maine Dept. of Inland Fisheries & Wildlife (1983)
Find A Space-Show Your Face teaches children what to do if they are lost in the woods. According to Search & Rescue Director Gary Anderson, "Many of the over 300 searches the Department of Inland Fisheries & Wildlife conducts each year involve young children.

We hope this program and the support of schools and parents will help alleviate this problem."
