Blisters and cuts happen all too frequently in the backcountry. Knowing how to properly treat them is a must for all outdoor adventurers. In this hands-on workshop, you'll practice the best blister care techniques and learn how to manage lacerations and abrasions. The next time you find yourself with a situation on your hands, you'll be ready to take action! Participants should wear shoes with laces. If you want to learn about additional first aid topics in-depth, check out a two-day Wilderness First Aid class facilitated by our partners at NOLS.

    Notes

    This session is great for anyone needing a refresh from Wilderness First Aid, anyone wanting to learn more about first aid, and general public interested in having knowledge to help others.
