Mat is a professional guide with years of experience leading various levels of hikes and we are excited to learn more from him! Please save the date for this unique opportunity. 

We will discuss various scenarios including how to make changes to your event plan, controlling a crowd, and incorporating Leave No Trace principles into your event.

This workshop will be preceded by a morning CFPA Volunteer Orientation session from 9:30-12 p.m. All CFPA Ramble Guides who have not attended an orientation are asked to come to the morning session. Potential CFPA volunteers or those just looking to learn more about what CFPA is all about are welcome to join the orientation too.

CFPA Ramble Guides lead CFPA Rambles, which are free, fun, and easygoing outings scheduled every month throughout the year. These adventures are designed to introduce people to the great outdoors.

Each Ramble Guide is asked to choose and lead two simple hikes and participate in at least one training session each year. Choose a trail you already know and love or find a trail that is newer to you that you want to explore. Each guide is encouraged to attend our safety training offering, and all have criminal background checks to alleviate issues of participant safety.
