Posted on Tuesday, May 12th, 2015 by »

Friends of Scotchman Peaks Board Member and Secretary Carol Jenkins taught a Wilderness First Aid course to a group of volunteers dedicated to improving their trail skills. All of the attendees passed with flying colors, and Carol is kind enough to teach another course this weekend!
