Outing
Basic Backpacking Class

When:

Jan 24, 2009
10:00

Details:

Interested in learning about backpacking?  Join us as we display and discuss the gear needed for overnight backpacking.  We’ll look at equipment, discuss optional equipment, prices, and where to shop.  This is the first step in getting an active overnight backpacking program restarted with our group.

After the discussion, we’ll take an optional hike on the nature trail of this great Mandarin Park.
