OC HIKING TRAIL GUARDIANS
OC Hiking Club presents...
Trail Guardians Certification Training — Special Event
Become a volunteer Trail Guardian! Trail Guardians help protect our local and out-of-town trails through trail stewardship. Your help is urgently needed to keep our trails beautiful and safe. Learn important skills that take only seconds to implement, but have a lasting impact on wilderness and wildlife. These on-the-fly trail skills utilize what you bring on every hike, your hands, no heavy equipment is required. Earn your Trail Guardian Certificate by attending this training and fulfilling a self-assigned number of trail miles by the completion date. All ages welcome (must be able to sit quietly).
Bring friends & family — learn the secrets of trail stewardship on-the-go. For beginning to advanced hikers. Attendees will receive a certificate upon completing a self-assigned number of trail miles by completion date. Check calendar for upcoming certification training classes via meetup.com or contact us.
