    Welcome to our second Hump Day hike of the season!

    This time we will go further afield and explore an Owyhee Canyon at Hardtrigger Creek. We will also visit a small waterfall.

    The hike will be easy to moderate and will be between one and two miles long, depending on available time.

    We will meet at the IOA Hall and caravan to our location. The drive will take about an hour and involves dirt roads. A high clearance vehicle is preferred.

    See you there.

    Enjoy a two-day Leave no Trace training experience on the Snake River at Celebration Park.

    Awareness/Orientation (pre-requisite): Wed April 28th, 2021 6:30 – 9:00 PM – IOA Hall 3401 Brazil St, Boise, ID 83715 (Free to public)

    Field Portion of Course: April 30th 6PM – May 1st, 2021 4 PM (FRI-SAT) – Celebration Park Website, Canyon County (Registration Required) Google Maps and Directions

    Through focused activities, hands-on field experience and both formal and informal discussions, you will be introduced to concepts and methods that will advance your knowledge of Leave No Trace issues, expand your repertoire of low-impact skills and increase your effectiveness in teaching these important skills to others. This is a fun course where all participants have a part in demonstrating the choices that can be made to minimize our impact on the land and our resources. We have the group area at Celebration Park reserved and many tent locations.

    On completion of this course, participants will be registered as Leave No Trace Trainers with the National Leave No Trace Center for Outdoor Ethics and will receive a certificate of course completion as well as their Leave No Trace Trainer lapel pin or patch.

    If you are teaching LNT in the classroom or your community group this is a great opportunity for training at a reasonable price.

    $55.00 for IOA Members, $80.00 for Non-IOA members.  Join the IOA at the time of registration and get the member price and save $5!  The cost covers course materials and meals with the exception of lunch for Saturday, which the participant should bring.

    Participants will run or hike a challenging 6.2 mile course or a 2.9 mile out-and-back course. The 6.2 mile course takes runners around two symmetrical volcanic pit Crater Rings, a unique site featuring one of the few examples of volcanic pit craters in the continental United States, and recognized as a National Natural Landmark. The 2.9 mile course leads to a spectacular view of the east crater. This is a great option for those who would like to experience the craters, but don't really want to travel all the way around them on a rough and challenging course.
