Zoom Seminars: March 31, April 7, April 14, 2021, 6:30 – 8:30 PM.
Learn how to travel safely and comfortably with only a pack on your back through the annual Beginner’s Backpack course run by the Backpack Section.
We are offering this opportunity for folks who have little or no experience in backpacking but want to explore backcountry trails and get away from the crowds.
As the Sierra Club is still closed and in person outings are suspended, we are holding this year’s class virtually via Zoom on 3 evenings. Experienced Backpack Section leaders will present the topics as slide shows or videos. There is time allocated for participants to ask questions.
Once in-person outings are starting again, the Backpack Section plans to offer 2-day overnight field trips for course participants.
