This event is the first for our virtual backpack training series! Join us on May 28th at 7:30 PM. With record-breaking numbers of people getting outdoors to enjoy nature, the impact to our parks and trails is also at an all-time high. Those of us interested in backpacking, or those who already love to backpack, need to practice effective ways of minimizing our impact. Join us for a discussion of the 7 Leave No Trace principles as applied to backpacking.
