Winter Gear and Gab at Spillian

Sunday, December 14, 2014 - 1:00pm - 3:00pm

Second Sundays at Spillian continues with a winter hiking for the new-to-winter hiker presentation, a short stroll around the Spillian trails and a shopping opportunity!

Avid Catskills hiker and Trail Conference Catskills Assistant Program Coordinator Heather Rolland will present a short program exploring getting started and getting inspired to get outside this winter, with a focus on gear, safety, and special concerns for kids and dogs while in the great outdoors.

Will Soter, the NYNJTC's Trails Chair for the southern Catskills, will lead a walk on the Spillian grounds, and discuss the many volunteer opportunities available on local trails.

Local outfitters will be on hand to answer questions about winter gear, offer suggestions for must haves and stocking stuffers, and yes - they will have a wonderful array of great stuff to help you get outside and play.

Refreshments will be served.

This event is free and open to the public.  Please register by emailing Heather, calling the Trail Conference's Catskills regional office at 518.628.4243 or by registering on the event's workshop page.
