We will hike around the park and at the same time learn and practice a knot or two. We will also discuss which tasks in backpacking, camping and canoeing can require the use of such knots.
The emphasis will be put on easy to tie and easy to remember knots. This time we will discuss knots that you might need right after arrival to a campsite.

While some of the knots may also be used in climbing, we will not discuss their climbing applications..
