HikeSafe & Leave No Trace Hiking Tips in the Catskills Second Sundays at Spillian

The Trail Conference's Second Sundays at Spillian series continues with a free HikeSafe and Leave No Trace discussion about safe and environmentally sustainable hiking in the Catskills this February. HikeSafe, along with the Hiker Responsibility Code, was developed as a joint program between the White Mountain National Forest and the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department to create and develop a Mountain Safety Education Program.  While originally designed to educate those hiking throughout New Hampshire about the steps they must take in order to be prepared before entering the forest, the HikeSafe program has expanded to include other areas, including the Catskills.  The Leave No Trace Center for Outdoor Ethics teaches people of all ages how to enjoy the outdoors responsibly, and is the most widely accepted outdoor ethics program used on public lands. This workshop will focus on applying HikeSafe and Leave No Trace principals to your hikes, walks, excursions and climbs in the Catskills.  You'll learn how to be safe on your hike and how to ensure your hike doesn't degrade any of our natural resources.  Refreshments will be served. This event is free and open to the public.  Please register below so we can maintain an accurate headcount for the event.
