We are so blessed to be around not one but THREE of the best outdoor outfitters around. This entry, however, is specifically talking about REI. Not sure you are aware, but our local REI offers classes at both their Fort Worth and Southlake locations that can help everyone feel a little more prepared for their outdoor adventures.
From classes on camp cooking to bike maintenance to backpacking to hiking... you can find something for everyone! You do need to register online. Most are actually FREE so you have nothing to lose and everything to gain!
Some (definitely not all) of the upcoming classes you might be interested are:
3/14 at 6:30 pm Camp Cooking Basics, Fort Worth
3/15 at 6:30 pm Paddling Basics, Southlake
3/21 at 6:30 pm Women's Backpacking Basics, Fort Worth
3/22 at 6:30 pm Camping Basics, Southlake
3/24 at 6:30 pm Camp Cooking Basics for Backpackers, Fort Worth
