Have you ever wanted to hang a clothesline? Set up a hammock? Tighten down your tent tarp? Secure a bear bag? If so, join TLC for an introduction to knot tying while enjoying a short hike at Brumley Nature Preserve. Participants will be introduced to five foundational knots that are useful for camping and backpacking. This will be a hands-on, experimental, collaborative excursion – a hike with occasional stops for knot exploration. TLC volunteer trail guide Lisa Croucher, herself a knot-tying novice, will introduce five knots and will demonstrate their practical application in an outdoor setting. Participants will receive a list of recommended resources for continuing their learning and practice independently.

This is a free event but preregistration is required. Save your spot at this link!
