Intro Backpacking Webinar


Hike Nova Scotia’s Intro to Backpacking webinar is geared for those interested in trying overnight backpacking trips. It will be offered at 7 pm on Thursday, April 22. Do you have an interest in multi-day/overnight hiking trips in the wildness, but don’t know how to go about it? Looking for new experiences/challenges beyond day hiking? This one-hour webinar is designed as an introduction to backpacking for those with no or little experience. It will cover how to plan and prepare for a backpacking trip and cover what equipment you will need.   

Note: This is a live webinar only; there will be no recording available afterward. 

Presenter
The presenter is Andrew Knight, an experienced hiker and Board Member of Hike Nova Scotia and Leave No Trace Canada. Upon moving to Nova Scotia, Andrew decided it was practical to section hike the Appalachian Trail from Vermont to Maine. Over the years, he has been working to complete this goal, but has also discovered and backpacked other trails in the Northeast US and closer to home in New Brunswick and Nova Scotia. He looks forward to sharing some of his lessons learned so you might avoid some of the mistakes he has made.  

It is offered in partnership with the NS Department of Communities, Culture and Heritage.
