Hey all you "newbies" and anyone who needs a refresher. This will be a discussion and presentation on all things hiking. If you are new to hiking you'll want to attend.
We'll be discussing all sorts of hiking topics such as:
Why we Hike
Trip Ratings
Hiking books, guides and maps
Wildlife
Preparing for hiking
Hiking etiquette
Hiking Gear

and more

plus Q and A

There will be plenty of group involvement and hands on participation. It definately won't be a boring classroom type setting.

Everyone attending will recieve a DVD and hiking lists etc.

The seminar is being offered through The Slow and Steady Adventures Co. There is a $20 per person charge to help cover the cost of the room and materials plus refreshments.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
