Backpacking Basics w/ Lisa Myers and Shawn Green

May 20, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

Meet at the Wissahickon Environmental Center. Have you been curious about backcountry camping, but not sure where to start? Join experienced backpackers Lisa and Shawn as they discuss essential gear, clothing, preparation, safety precautions, and suggestions for a successful first trip.

Registration is recommended for all hikes (required if indicated) so that participants can be informed of weather or other emergency cancellations. Unless otherwise specified, Trail Ambassador Walks may be on rocky, rugged trails that may be wet and slippery. Wear sturdy shoes or boots with socks. Long pants are recommended for protection against occasional poison ivy and possible ticks. Bring water and a snack if desired. Unless otherwise noted, children over six are welcome if accompanied by a responsible adult. Walks are cancelled in heavy rain or icy conditions. For more information contact Cesali Renn at Visit for updates.
