Saturday, Feb 17th (Adult, 10 max, 10:30a-12p) – Backpacking

There are hundreds of great campsites all across this state that cannot be accessed by train, car, or boat. The only way to these secluded gems is to pack all of your belongings up and carry them with you. This daunting task can seem overwhelming at first as you begin to figure out what you should and shouldn’t pack for the trip. We’re here to assist you with not only figuring out what to pack but HOW to pack it, when the best time for backpacking in Michigan is and where some of our favorite spots are hidden (some in the upper peninsula and some a little closer to home). We will discuss gear, weather, plant identification, wild animal awareness and safety and so much more. We will even have some practice gear for you to try out and on! 

Class is $5 per person for residents of Oakland Township, $7 per person for non-residents, 

Lost Lake Nature Park is located at 846 Lost Lake Trail in Oakland Township, Michigan.
