Want to lead hikes for the Rio Grande Sierra Club?
We want you! As a Sierra Club Outings leader, you will join others in exploring our wild lands and share your love for nature. You could be hiking, backpacking, kayaking, bicycling or doing service work — it’s up to you, because you ultimately design and lead your very own trips
The requirements to become a certified outings leader are:
Be at least 18 years of age
Complete Outings Leader Training
Complete First Aid and CPR training
Complete at least one provisional hike in the company of a certified leader
Outings leaders training (OLT-101) will be offered on Saturday, March 7th from 8:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. and will be held at our Albuquerque office, 2215 Lead Ave. SE.
If you are already an outings leader and it's been four years since you last attended, this is a great opportunity to meet the refresher training requirement.
This training will provide current and prospective outing leaders with the tools and information they need to lead a safe, inspiring and fun outing. Attendees will receive a resource packet that includes the Outings Leader Handbook and update, a Trailhead Talk laminated card, an Emergency Response laminated card and a Leave No Trace laminated card.
