Our diligent ACE Safety Coordinator, Colin Giegerich, will be coming out from our Arizona branch in order to provide our continuing AmeriCorps members with a Wilderness First Aid (WFA) training. On Saturday at 1pm Erik Grundvig will depart with a van and trailer from the Santa Cruz member house en route to a nearby campsite. After arriving at the campsite Erik will be holding a short Leave No Trace (LNT) training at the campground. The crew will be camping Saturday and Sunday night at the campground, where breakfast, lunch, and dinner will be provided, but will function in the exact way our crews operate. Please bring all necessary items for camping for two nights, including water containers and tuperware. Additionally please make sure to bring a pen/pencil(s), a notebook, and a functioning headlamp as there is certainly some studying involved when receiving the WFA certification. In chance that you think you may study with another member, blank flashcard may not be a bad idea too.
The WFA course will be held at a location nearby the campground. After the completion of the course on Monday afternoon/evening you will head to the Santa Cruz warehouse in order to drop of certain items before settling back into the ACE Santa Cruz member house.
Goodluck and have fun! It's a great course!
