Dear Hikers:

As we enter a new year, a great Sierra Club opportunity is about to begin….an opportunity that only happens one time each year and it is one of the best outdoor learning experiences the Sierra Club has to offer. This is the Angeles Chapter Wilderness Travel Course (WTC).

Some of you have taken the course and are now leaders and/or knowledgeable hikers. For those of you who have not, enrollment in WTC is something you should consider now. The Long Beach/South Bay section begins tomorrow. Other sections start the following weeks in January. Those of you who have taken and benefited from WTC, please tell your friends and workmates so they can take advantage and enroll before classes begin.

The Wilderness Travel Course helps build outdoor skills so hikers can be safe in the backcountry. The course runs for ten weeks and includes four field trips (two one day and two weekend outings). Students learn map and compass navigation skills for competently hiking off-trail, snow travel, rock scrambling techniques, first aid, nutrition and lots more. The course is followed by unforgettable experience backpacking trips most of which take place in the High Sierra during the summer months.WTC moves you from being a day hiker to a more serious adventurer. You will acquire skills in trip planning, preparation, equipment and wilderness safety to take you into the backcountry in all seasons, beyond roads and trails with new friends that share your interest in the outdoors. Again, the course runs only one time each year and takes place in Southern California in four locations as follows: Long Beach/South Bay (Wednesdays beginning January 4th); San Gabriel Valley (Tuesdays beginning Jan 10); West Los Angeles (Wednesdays beginning Jan 18); Orange County (Tuesdays beginning Jan 24).There is more information on the website at­I hope you will consider this invaluable opportunity and/or will tell your friends, relatives, neighbors and hiking companions about WTC.
