Sunday, May 18th, 10am-4pm
Enhance your hiking and wilderness skills in a one-day workshop, which will leave you safer, more observant and confident whether you hike with a group or alone. Hands on skills include being able to see tracks of humans and animals in Northwest forest duff, assessing a trailhead and your personal security, interfacing with large animals of all kinds, using effective defense methods and seeing more wildlife. Fieldwork will be physically easy and mentally challenging.
Bring a lunch and be prepared for the weather. Long pants and shoes are required as we will be off trail for part of the day. Sunscreen, hats, bug protection, hiking sticks and a pack with water and snacks is recommended.
(Kids under 19 must be accompanied by a parent, under 12 will be considered on a case by case basis.)
