Description

In honor of Groundhog Day, Outdoor Chattanooga and Reflection Riding Arboretum and Nature Center offer an outdoor ethics workshop related to critters on the trail. Get close to several rescued forest animals to gain a greater understanding of these creatures and learn more on how to prevent problematic and dangerous encounters while visiting the forest to hike or camp. Being good stewards of our natural world starts with understanding how to avoid a negative encounter, and techniques to properly critter proof your campsite including how to hang a bear bag. The workshop is suitable for all ages.
No reservations required.
