Surviving the Wild, Part 1: Backpacking 101 (Sat. 25 Mar, 2017 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm)

Venturing into the backcountry can be amazing . . . or miserable if you're not prepared.  During this workshop you will learn what to pack for trips of various lengths, how to assemble a proper first aid kit, how to load your pack for comfort and efficiency, and how to keep critters out of your food.  We will also review water sanitation techniques, boot selection, and physical training for your trip.  You will get a chance to carry a fully loaded pack to see how it feels.  Bring along your own gear so you can customize yoru kit, or borrow our equipment for the afternoon.
