Description

Do you know what to do in an emergency? Learn effective first aid treatments for injuries and common sicknesses. From treating wounds and broken limbs to dehydration and food poisoning, get a primer on taking care of yourself and your hiking buddies in this three-hour clinic.

The Intro to Wilderness First Aid Clinic at Colorado Trail Days will be lead by Scott "Griz" Kelley of NOLS.

Griz has been a WEMT since the mid-90s and has taught for WMI/NOLS Wilderness Medicine for nearly 20 years. He has many years experience as a guide and administrator for several outdoor programs and now works at Mercy Regional Medical Center as a Physical Therapist Assistant.

While this clinic is free, please signup before hand.

Colorado Trail Days is a 3-day celebration of the outdoors, featuring free clinics on backpacking and wilderness skills, gear demos, prizes, live music, and more. We’ll be giving away some awesome swag from Osprey Packs, Outdoor Research, MSR and more. Whether you’re a day-hiker, thru-hiker, or all-around lover of the outdoors, CT Days is a great opportunity to spruce up on your outdoor skills, win some prizes, and meet new hiking buddies. Proceeds from tickets and prize drawings benefit Trails2000.

Colorado Trail Days is brought to you by Backcountry Experience, located at 1205 Camino Del Rio in Durango, CO.
