The 20 participants included trail crew members & chiefs, trail chairs, trails supervisors, trail maintainers, and educators, most from Gunks and Catskills areas. Big thanks to instructors Bob Randhare & Rick Savino.

We plan to schedule another Wilderness First Aid course through Trail U this spring at Sterling Forest State Park. Nearly 40 trails-related workshops are already on our Trail U schedule. Check them out and get out with fun, active people! http://www.nynjtc.org/view/workshops
