Germantown MetroPark invites the community to participate in an overnight backpacking program designed specifically for women beginning at noon Saturday, March 12.
“Backpacking Basics for Women” will cover “Leave No Trace” techniques, campsite selection, backpacking shelters, water filtration, route finding, and more. The group will meet in Nature Center parking lot prior to the hike to hand out equipment.
Participants are encouraged to eat lunch before arriving as dinner and breakfast are prepared in camp. If needed, gear is available at no charge. Participants also should have taken “Intro to Backpacking” before, and need to register before the event. There is a $15 fee.
For more information, contact the park at 937-225-7275. MEREDITH WHELCHEL
