  • Critical: Post class room, will be site visits, assessment of trails, critical thinking on prescriptions for the trail
  • Practical: Tackle an appropriate project by applying classroom theory and assessment while fixing a section of trail or constructing a new project

The course will be two days- one classroom/field with day 2 in field. Depending on the numbers of interested parties and their residence geographically. We will determine the appropriate location in the Okanagan Valley to best accommodate the largest number of attendees.
