  • Trip planning
  • What a backpacker eats in a day (and meal planning tips)
  • Managing unpredictable weather
  • How to be and feel safe, even when hiking solo
  • How to poop in the woods (everyone’s favorite)

No background knowledge necessary for this free intro. This event will take place in-person only.
