The Olympia Mountaineers will hold an orientation night Monday to explain the courses the group is offering in 2011.
This is a good opportunity to start getting out into the wilderness, enjoying the alpine or marine environment, or reaching the summit of some of North America’s most revered mountains, organizers said.
Mountaineer members will be on hand to talk about courses and outdoor activities include wilderness travel, alpine scrambling, rock and glacier climbing, hiking, kayaking, leadership, backpacking, winter travel, snowshoeing, Nordic skiing, conservation, mountaineering oriented first aid and backcountry navigation.
The orientation will be 7 to 9 p.m. at the Worthington Center on the campus of St. Martin’s University, 5300 Pacific Ave. S.E., Lacey.
