If you are interested in participating, please call 616-355-1057 to register! Are you getting bored with car camping or want to take your hiking to the next level? Then join DeGraaf Nature Center as we introduce you to the exciting world of backpacking. The Backpacking 101 Series will meet the last Saturday of the month to explore many different aspects of this pastime including trail etiquette, gear options, backpacking food, trip planning, survival, and more. We will also include training hikes as we make our way to a weekend on the trails next Summer. You may attend these as they work for your schedule; you do not have to attend one to attend the next one (though different information will be covered at every session). Fee: $3 per session or Free for Members. Additional fee for optional backpacking trip. Photo from staff personal backpacking trip across Isle Royale!
