Get ready to hone your skills and test them in one of the most beautiful places in Texas. This course taught throughout the Fall semester is intended to train attendees on Outdoor Leader technical skills, wildland management history, trip leading interpersonal skills and general outdoor living skills. The classroom sessions will meet every Tuesday night starting October 4th from 7pm – 8:30pm.
