Fireside Chat: Backpacking Basics with Mountain Recreation

Come camping with us!

The immensely popular new series called Fireside Chats continues with community partners Bear Yuba Land Trust, Folk Trails Hiking Club, and Inn Town Campground.

Ready to take your day hikes to the next level? Join Mountain Recreation’s camping guru Nick Somers for an informative evening covering the “Basics of Backpacking”. Nick will cover topics like pre-trip planning, the 10 essentials, lightweight gear options, how to pack a pack, Leave No Trace practices, and local backpacking opportunities. Participants will receive a store coupon they can use to outfit themselves for summer adventures.

As usual, we’ll have trail maps and merchandise for sale. Other chats in the camping season series feature Legends and Lore with California Naturalist Steve Roddy in July, Campfire Cooking with Mountain Recreation in August, and Women in the Outdoors this fall! This is a great opportunity to pitch a tent or go “glamping” at the Inn Town Campground with family and friends at a reduced price. If not camping, please park outside the campground gates and walk in. We’ll be by the campfire.

Support Your Community. Support Land Conservation. Support Local Trails. See you there!

Snacks and beverages provided
Maps, outdoor gear and merchandise for purchase

Cost: $10 – Participants can camp that evening with 50% off regular tent camping sites or 25% off regular glamping sites. Booking your campsite in advance is highly recommended.
