Name: Backpacking in the Sierra
Date: September 5, 2018 - September 26, 2018
Event Description:
Have you ever wanted to take an extended trip to the Sierra, but weren't sure what to bring or where to go? This class will teach you what to bring, how to prepare and the best places to visit for your interests. This course is all about fun and will be capped off by a 3-day weekend in the Sierra to let you apply what you learned. Although designed for the inexperienced, those with moderate experience have commented that the course was valuable and fun. Review from Backpacking student: "This class is awesome! If backpacking into the Sierra is on your bucket list, do this. Dr. Lionvale is all about minimal and borrowing supplies. I bought a spork and a headlamp and borrowed, or shared, everything else. Also, you are under the most capable tutelage with Dr. Lionvale. The array of students was yet another asset! This is not just a class, it is an experience." Note: Youth ages 10-17 are welcome to take the class, as long as they are accompanied by an adult.
