Will Soter, our new volunteer Catskills Trails co-chair for Ulster and Sullivan Counties, played the part of an injured hiker during our Wilderness First Aid workshop in New Paltz last weekend. (Photo by Alex Marra, the other regional co-chair.)
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
