Winter Workshop Series

When it gets too cold outside to play, come inside to learn or improve your outdoor skills, so you’re prepared to play when the weather warms again. Outdoor Chattanooga’s Winter Workshops are a series of classroom-based, outdoor education and skill-building workshops that cover a variety of outdoor recreation topics. They are 100% free and open to the public. No reservations or experience required to attend. Join us for one, some or all to improve your outdoor skills! All workshops are held on Thursdays, 6:30-8:00 PM, January 10 through February 28, 2019, at Outdoor Chattanooga.
