Wilderness Skills: Emergencies and Survival in the Wilderness

Join us for this fun and informative evening series of monthly classes at REI in Tustin as we will be discussing subjects such as day hiking, backpacking, navigation, first aid, stoves, cooking and meal planning, sleeping and sheltering, emergencies and survival, gear selection, and more. All courses will be taught by experienced Sierra Club Outing Leaders. This topic will cover weather related emergencies, common injuries, navigation, what to do if you get lost, how to refind your location/direction of travel, when to create an emergency shelter, how to emergency bivouac if you need help and can’t make it out, how to get help, search and rescue, when to start a fire, the use of the 10 'plus' essentials, wild animals, how to get more water and more.

The instructors for this session will be Todd Clark and former WTC instructor Joe Harvey. Information will be available about upcoming hikes and events. Come and invest an hour or two of time. It might be the best investment that you have ever made. There is no charge for the course.
