Class IconApr 11 (Sat) Backpacking 101 Class

(replace this text with a short description of the image)Leave the crowds in the campgrounds. Backpacking enables you to move into backcountry serenity, expanding your mobility to  trails where your car won’t take you. Dallas Sierra Club outings leaders with decades of experience leading multi-day backpacking trips will demonstrate what you need to know to begin or enhance your own backpacking experiences. Topics include gear to take versus leave at home (packs, tents, food and cookware, clothing) and safety and comfort tips.  This class is for both total novices and intermediate level backpackers who want to refresh their knowledge, skills or gear. Class location is the First United Methodist Church, Richardson, 503 N. Central Expressway in Richardson, Room 2A. Click here for directions on reaching the class location from Central Expressway.

Class IconMay 27 (Wed) Wilderness Navigation Class - Part 1

Learn to find your way in the wilderness in this comprehensive two-night class. Topics include buying maps, how to read maps, how not to get lost, what to do if you do get lost, different kinds of compasses and how to use your compass. We'll discuss GPS devices, but our main focus will be how to use a map and compass so you're not trusting your navigation (and life) to something that takes batteries. If you have a compass, bring it to the class. If you don't have one, we will have an extra you can use and will show you what to look for when you purchase your own. The class is offered at the First United Methodist Church, Richardson, 503 N. Central Expressway, Richardson, TX, Room 230.  Click here for directions to the location from Central Expressway. The class will start promptly at 6:30 PM and will finish at about 8:45 PM. The total fee for the two-night class is $40 or $35 for Sierra Club members. Handouts are included. Bring a pen or pencil for taking notes and for navigation practice exercises.  A reservation isn't necessary. Just show up. Part 2 of the class is the following night (Thursday, May 28), same time and place. A day hike with a class instructor will be offered to class participants who want to practice their new skills. Contact: Bill Greer Send Email 972-247-0446
