National Outdoor Leadership School Presentation

March 22, 2009

Matt Copeland from NOLS (National Outdoor Leadership School) will be at Walkabout in Lexington on March 25th from 10 – 12 AM with information regarding NOLS.  Matt will give a presentation at 7pm in Elrod Commons at Washington and Lee University open to anyone interested.

A little bit about NOLS:  Founded in 1965 by legendary mountaineer Paul Petzoldt, NOLS–a 501(c)(3) not for profit educational institution–takes people of all ages on remote wilderness expeditions, teaching technical outdoor skills, leadership, and environmental ethics in some of the world’s wildest and most awe-inspiring classrooms. What NOLS teaches cannot be learned in a classroom or on a city street. It takes practice to learn outdoor skills and time to develop leadership. The wilderness provides the ideal setting for this unique education.

Walkabout Outfitter has something for everyone! Carrying all the items you’ll need for trekking the Appalachian Trail, from hiking clothes and boots to water filters! Walkabout sells top brands like The North Face, Patagonia, and Mountain Hardwear.
