When you’re in the wilderness, it’s good to know what to do if something should go wrong… or how to keep things from going wrong.

The Bitter Root Back Country Horsemen will have their free annual Wilderness Skills Weekend May 31 and June 1 up Bass Creek at the Charles Waters Campground.

The two-day event includes how to load up a pack animal, Leave-No-Trace camping, stock containment, setting up camp, cooking, GPS navigation, equine first aid and more.

The sessions will be on the west end of the Charles Waters Campground and will run from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday. There will be a lunch social at noon both days where you can meet the club members. Check the full schedule on the BBCH website.

The BBCH is over 30 years old and the club works on trails every year – over 600 personal hours and 425 stock hours – mostly on the Bitterroot National Forest and in the Selway-Bitterroot Wilderness.
