Join the Deschutes Land Trust and Monica Rimai for an introduction to backpacking workshop at the Metolius Preserve.
Still working on taking your first backpacking trip? Then, this class is for you! Learn the basics of backpacking with Monica Rimai, an alum of the National Outdoor Leadership School (NOLS). She’ll help you figure out what to wear and bring (without spending lots of money), how to pack your pack and set up your tent, and how to choose your route and hike lightly on the land. We’ll use the Preserve’s ponderosa forests as a training ground to practice your skills so you can feel confident when you head out on your trip.
