Hiking.  Exercise for people who hate exercise. Am I right?! 


Whether you enjoy urban hikes or backcountry treks, it’s important to know where you’re going, what to wear, and what supplies you’ll need to take with you. Believe it or not, there’s more to hiking than just owning a good pair of boots, and we’d love to share our knowledge with you! 

Join us in person, or check us out online via our Facebook LIVE event on the BCO Facebook page ( Both events run simultaneously, and you can join the Q&A online or in person. 


If you do happen to drop in, you have the chance to win some very cool giveaways compliments of Whole Earth Provision. The giveaway will be held at the end of the presentation. Plus Karbach providing cold beverages while supplies last.

Never been before??

No worries!  More than half of the people going have never been before and many people show up by themselves.  So when you show up, if everyone looks like they have known each other for years.... Don’t worry.  They likely just met.  Look for the event leader and then them know it’s your first time and we’ll make sure to take care of you! :D
