Ozark Society—Workshop for Hike Leaders

Bob Cross will be conducting a Workshop for Hike Leaders on Saturday, September 7th, 2019 from 10:00 AM to 3:00 PM.

We ALWAYS need new faces in the hike leader department. We have some strong hikers in our chapter that are just a little unsure about taking on the lead role. If you’re one of these hikers, this is an excellent opportunity, and its FREE. Bob has in-depth training and experience on hike planning and problem resolution. Lunch will be provided.
