Helpful Hint

Since the courses are physically demanding, we suggest that you do not plan late evening events and get ample rest prior to each days activities. If you have a small cooler, bring snacks, lunch, soft drinks, and water to class. Be sure your boots are comfortable, broken in, and have adequate traction. Be alert to each day’s weather conditions and dress in layers as appropriate for comfort.
