Description

Winter Wilderness Safety Instruction at Saratoga Winery Includes Beer or Wine Tasting Drink Ticket

More and more people are enjoying the outdoors. The call of the mountains has been heard by many and the number of active hikers in the backcountry of New York and New England is at unprecedented levels. It's great to see so many people strapping on their hiking boots and making their way into the wilderness. However, with the increased risk of the outdoors comes increased responsibility to keep ourselves safe.

The number of accidents in the backcountry is on the rise. Each year the number of search and rescue operations performed by the NYS Forest Rangers reaches a new high while the number of Rangers hovers around 133. Some of these operations have a happy ending, however many do not.

On December 11, 2018, join Adirondack Mountain Rescue crew member Katie Rhodes for a Winter Backcountry Safety Briefing at Saratoga Winery. The aim of this program is to educate hikers on ways to prepare, gear up and stay safe while hiking, particularly as the winter months approach.

Based in Clifton Park, New York, Adirondack Mountain Rescue is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization formed with the purpose of providing a highly trained and equipped resource to aid law enforcement in their tasks of finding and rescuing missing persons. 47% of Adirondack Mountain Rescue's crew members are women. Learn more at www.adirondackmountainrescue.org.

Ticket includes talk, discussion, and drink ticket.

All are welcome!
