BELFAST, Maine — The Maine Chapter of the Appalachian Mountain Club will offer a winter hiking skills workshop at 6 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 5, at First Belfast Church, United Church of Christ, 8 Court St.
AMC Maine Chapter leaders Peter Broderick and Laura Flight will discuss clothing, gear, snow travel, and other essential elements to prepare yourself for outdoor outings in the winter.
This event is intended as an introduction course for experienced three-season hikers and a refresher for experienced winter adventurers.
Although the focus of the workshop is on hiking in the winter, many of the topics apply to any outdoor winter outing. This free and open to the public workshop will be an excellent “things-you-need-to-know-before-you-go” for anyone who will be spending time out of doors this winter.
For more information, please contact Laura Flight at firstname.lastname@example.org or at (207) 215-5306.
