»Day Hike and Trail Upgrading at Cedar Ridge PreserveDay Hike and Trail Upgrading at Cedar Ridge PreserveThis month's third Saturday service outing at Cedar Ridge will be different because our Dallas Sierra Club Chair Wendel Withrow will be at the parking lot, by the trail entrance point, to lead a day hike to the Possum Haw Trail that the Sierra Club maintains.  We look forward to seeing new smiling faces to  help maintain the trails and enhance the flora and fauna. Arrive by 8:45 AM, ready to walk and work until optional lunch afterward.  It's fun and we have ordered excellent weather to enjoy and upgrade these beautiful trails on the southwest edge of Dallas. The address is 7171 Mountain Creek Parkway, Dallas 75249. For directions and general information about Cedar Ridge Preserve, click this link. If you need more information or want to carpool, call or email.

»Wilderness Navigation Class--Part 1Wilderness Navigation Class--Part 1This is a comprehensive and fun two-night class in navigation with map and compass. Part 1 is Wednesday night at 6:30 and part 2 is Thursday night, September 24 at 6:30. Both sessions are upstairs at the Whole Foods Market, SE quadrant of Preston Road and Forest Lane. The fee for the two-night class is $35 for Sierra Club members, $40 for non-members. An optional field lab for class participants will be set on a subsequent Saturday or Sunday at no additional charge.  This is a great value compared to navigation courses offered by outfitter stores. Bring cash or a check.  Bring a compass if you have one.  If not, we'll have an extra you can use and we'll advise what to look for when you buy your own.  Both sessions will run until approximately 9:00.  No reservations are necessary for this class.  You can just show up and pay at the door (cash or check).  You can also sign-up and pay in advance by clicking here.
