Join us for a free webinar about staying safe in the backcountry. We’ve got three great speakers lined up to teach you about basic first aid, safe stream crossings, and bear-awareness.
Wednesday, July 9 at 7 PM MT
Paul Holle, Wilderness EMT, Senior Instructor with NOLS Wilderness Medicine, and owner of Idaho Rescue Training will teach basic thought processes around making evacuation decisions in the backcountry, cleaning wounds, prepping a first aid kit, and additional classes that are available to expand your knowledge.
Whitney “Allgood” La Ruffa, a seasoned long-distance hiker with over 10,000 miles of hikes under his feet and President Emeritus of the American Long Distance Hiking Association will teach about one of the most dangerous aspects of a hike- crossing streams swollen with snowmelt or recent rainfall. “Allgood” will cover how to find a safe place to cross and other considerations to keep you safe while navigating water crossings on a hike.
Learn about bear-awareness with Evin Oneale, Idaho Fish & Game Regional Conservation Educator. Discover the steps you can take and what to pack to keep safe in bear country.
