Learn tips for backpacking in a series of Tri-Cities-area indoor and outdoor sessions led by InterMountain Alpine Club members.
Classes will be held at 6:30 p.m. Monday nights from March 6 until April 17. They are geared for those with little or no outdoor experience.
Classes cover topics such as tents and sleeping systems; maps and compasses; physical conditioning; and food and water. There is no cost, but a handbook and compass are suggested.
A backpacking adventure is planned for the end of the class.
Registration is open until spaces fill. Email firstname.lastname@example.org and put “backpacking school” in the subject line. Include your full name and contact information.
