Included in the series of seminars and demonstrations both days in the camping department will be tips on how to pick sleeping bags and tents, getting fitted correctly for backpacks, camp lighting options, GPS navigation and dehydrated foods for camping or backpacking.
Various campgrounds and public land organizations will be in attendance as well as conservation partners.

The free event begins with check-in at 8:30 and concludes about 12:30. Pre-registration is required so enough volunteers and food are arranged.
