DATE: March 2nd, 2019

TIME: 9:30-1:00

On March 2nd, we will be returning to what Para-Pups was created to teach, namely, mountaineering skills. The fun will kick-off at 9:30 A.M. with a block of instruction on the One Rope Bridge, which should also serve as a refresher to many of the students, and the event will be held at Jelks Preserve (2300 North River Road, Venice, FL. 34285). Come join the fun.

Items Needed: a backpack with water bottle, or, a Camelback hydration pack and a bike helmet. Long pants are best for the One Rope Bridge to help to protect against rope burn. Please bring a packed lunch.

(Please Note: a new registration and waiver must be filled out each month)
