ABOUT THE PResentation

Join the Gear Library for our first ever online event! We value being prepared for every outdoor adventure and are excited that, in this case, being prepared means we get to virtually gather and craft. You'll see how to make a few types of firestarter with materials that you likely have at home, as well as learn handy tips like which trail treats are the most incendiary. 

We'll send out a materials link ahead of time if you want to follow along or feel free to join us just for the information. This virtual event will be delivered via Zoom. You'll need a computer with an internet connection. Information about how to log on will be emailed out to participants at 5 pm on May 22.

About the Gear Library

The Mountaineers' Gear Library is full of equipment for hiking, car camping, backpacking, snowshoeing, and cross-country skiing. Youth groups can borrow this gear for free. The Mountaineers wants the outdoors to be accessible to everyone. By providing free gear and training through Washington Trails Association, we aim to decrease barriers that prevent youth from exploring the beautiful Pacific Northwest.
