How to avoid "Mr. Murphy" in the Backcountry.

If you spend any time in the Backcountry, there's a good chance you'll meet Mr. Murphy. His law states, "Anything that can go wrong, will go wrong," and usually at the worst possible time. Join SOS Adventures Master Outdoor Leader Joey Rios and learn the skills you’ll need to be prepared and stay alive! 9AM – 2PM; meet at the Exhibit Gallery by the main office. This interactive course is designed to teach adults the skills they’ll need to be confident and safe if they ever get lost or experience trouble outdoors. Activities will include demonstrations and hands-on instruction. Dress for the weather; bring plenty of water, a snack and sun protection. Program open to ages 14 and older; all minors must be accompanied by parent or legal guardian; no pets please. Reservations required and will be accepted through Noon Friday April 7, 2017. Class size limited to the first 12 who sign up. Sorry, no group reservations.
