by Nate Parr | 2007

Sign Up for the next Outings Leader Training at our annual Wilderness Training Workshop!

We need more member volunteers to become certified outings leaders. The Sierra Club, West Virginia Chapter has a unique opportunity to become one of the best programs in the nation if we can recruit enough leaders. We are blessed with the most diversified wilderness in the entire east coast and we need to show it off. If you become an outings leader, you will be part of this fun and exciting program.

Please contact me at your convenience by Mail: 5509 Sixth Ave., Vienna, WV 26105 or e-mail: , or phone: 304-295-7675 or 304-488-4047 for additional details. 

On June 29 – July 1 the Wilderness Coalition is conducting their annual activist training at and The Sierra Club is using this opportunity to recruit and train some additional outings leaders. This training will take place at The Mountain Institute next to Spruce Knob. This beautiful mountain setting offers us a great venue for classroom and trail training. The weekend training will consist of Outing Leaders Training 101 and First Aid. We will also be taking a short hike Sunday to apply our new skills. More details will be sent when they become available and as always. Sierra Club members will be reimbursed for their expenses.

Thank you, to all the members who have contacted me with your desire to become an outings leader. I will be following up with you in the near future with detailed information about the certification required: Outing Leader Training 101 and First Aid. I am attempting to hold training in the northern and southern part of the state. However, I will need 6-10 participants in each area for the Red Cross to teach the required First Aid. I will schedule training session as soon I have enough volunteers.
