We will be holding this training in the winter - stay tuned!

WRV is committed to becoming a more inclusive, equitable community, and we hope you'll join us in this work!

Cultural competence is a key factor in enabling individuals and organizations to be effective with people from a wide variety of backgrounds. Through a series of exercises, discussions and self-reflective activities participants will develop awareness and build skills to increase the ability to understand their cultural shaping and examine ways to be more inclusive as individuals and as part of the WRV community.

Participants will...
• Develop a common language around Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion;
• Explore the relationship between culture and diversity;
• Look at our personal cultural background;
• Examine the role privilege plays in our perception of the world; and
• Explore how we create an inclusive WRV community.

This training is grant funded; fees will cover the cost of food and materials. We hope you'll consider making an additional contribution to help ensure that we can offer trainings like this in the future.
Please contact rachel@wlrv.org to inquire about scholarships if needed.

Training: Wilderness First Aid & CPR

RESCHEDULED, THEN CANCELLED

Most of us know that we need to bring a first aid kit into the outdoors to work and play, but how many of us really know how to use it or know if we are carrying the right supplies in the first place? Wilderness First Aid and CPR are an important set of skills that every outdoor enthusiast should have. WRV is proud to partner with instructor Phil Rowe to host this training opportunity at our new office in Longmont.

Learn how to asses emergencies and patient incidents in a calm and systematic way so that you can not only treat, but avoid life-threatening emergencies in the backcountry. This class will cover basic first aid and specific techniques essential to know in wilderness settings in a mixture of lecture and hands-on activities. Students will practice during a series of scenarios designed to cover the most common real-life situations.

Please contact Rachel@wlrv.org or 303.543.1411 x109 with any questions about this event:

- Instructor is Phil Rowe - certified Advanced EMT/Wilderness EMT and a WRV volunteer!
- Certification is through the Emergency Care and Safety Institute (ECSI) and is valid for 2 years
- WFA Training will be from 8-5, Saturday and Sunday with an hour break for lunch each day. Attendance for the entire weekend is required for certification.
- CPR is OPTIONAL from 5:30-8pm on Saturday evening--please note in your registration if you would like to participate in the CPR portion or not.
- Fee of $130 ($100 for members and WRV leaders) includes all instructional course books, supplies and certification through ECSI. For those not participating in CPR, $10 will be removed from your fees. All students will be invoiced prior to the event.


PLEASE NOTE: Wilderness is considered any location more than an hour away from definitive care (meaning a hospital or medical clinic.) This certification does NOT qualify you to be a medic on WRV projects, but does train you to care for yourself and your companions in wilderness settings. Only certified WFRs can serve as a medic at volunteer events and projects.

If a minimum class size is not reached, all participants will be refunded full program fees. Thank you.

With Mike McHugh of Eldorado Canyon State Park.

Love trails and love rocks? This training is for you. Rock work is a technically challenging but extremely rewarding advanced component of trail construction and maintenance. Rigging skills can make rock work safer and more efficient, using ropes and pulleys to transport heavy loads of materials. Working with Mike McHugh, trails manager at Eldorado Canyon State Park and one of the best rock experts on the Front Range, you will learn the principles behind technical rigging on a project site on the south side of Fort Collins.

Sign up for one of the two days to get instruction and plenty of supervised practice setting up and operating high-lines as we move 10 tons of rock and fill material across an incised creek to stabilize a failing stream bank.

This training is provided free of charge.
