How to become an Outings Leader
Muir, Sierra Club's first president, encouraged us to
something for wildness and make the mountains glad."
Lots of activities qualify as outings: a
nature walk, a bike ride, skiing, a canoe or kayak trip, a scramble up a hill or
mountain, a beach clean up, a tour of an area threatened by development, a bird
survey...whatever you are interested in, you can be sure other people are too!
Be creative and have fun.
Sierra Club Maine Chapter will conduct an
Outing Leaders Training upon request. We really need outings leaders who are
willing to lead outings.
There is a 3-step process to become a
certified outings leader:
One day of Sierra Club training (depending
on the location of those interested in this leader training, we will travel to
where the most people are located).
Red Cross or similar First Aid & CPR
Supervised first hike by a
certified Maine Chapter outings leader.
