Mappy Hour Skills: Shelters & Knots

Tents are nice but what if you want an ultralight backcountry experience? Tonight, Greg Wilson from Freestone Expeditions will lead a class on shelter building in the backcountry. The class will also cover basic knots you need to know for shelters. Prepare to leave with a new skill to take with you into the outdoors! 

This event is part of OutdoorFest, a 10-day outdoor adventure festival throughout the city. Find out more at
