This class, taught from a naturalist's perspective, will provide you with some of the essential knowledge and skills for cold weather survival and snowy back-country decision making. You will learn to build snow shelters, make functional snowshoes from local materials, identify tracks and animals sign, locate useful plants, and enjoy the snow! This course is a mix of discussions and hands-on activities, so be prepared for non-stop action! Participants should be physically capable of walking with modern snowshoes at elevations of about 7,000 feet. An information packet will be sent out about a week prior to the course with details on what to bring and the meeting location.
This activity meets at Jim Hall Foothills Learning Center (FLC), 3188 Sunset Peak Rd., Boise.
To get to the FLC, take 8th street through the North End to Hull's Gulch Reserve. Go 1/3 mile past the end of the pavement.
