The Environmental Protection Information Center (EPIC) and Latino Outdoors are pleased to present a series of bilingual interpretative hikes and associated outdoor skills training workshops to connect diverse communities with nature and outdoor experiences. All events are free and open to all ages.
EPIC and Latino Outdoors are providing a series of seminars designed to expose wilderness users to a variety of skills, and knowledge, in particular for those interested in leading bilingual hikes throughout the Redwood Hikes series.
Join us February 25th for our first Outdoor Skills Training Workshop: Introduction to Interpretive Guiding. Topics to be covered include an introduction to interpretive guiding, leave no trace, basic equipment knowledge, and leadership skills. Meet at Humboldt State University, Founders Hall – Green and Gold Room 116 at 10 AM
The first hike will be lead by our newly appointed bilingual guides on April 15th through Headwaters Forest Preserve, South Fork Elk River Trail. This 3-mile trail is suitable for all levels of ability. Please meet at EPIC headquarters 145 G Street, Arcata at 10 am. Please wear appropriate clothing and footwear, bring food, water, and anything else you may need to be comfortable in the forest. Lunch will be provided*
