Whether you are a weekend warrior, a long distance hiker, rock climber, or backcountry guide, Wilderness First Aid (WFA) will help you keep yourself and those around you safe on adventures. During this two-day hands-on course, learn how to approach emergency situations and develop skills to help no matter where you find yourself! The course is led by Danielle O’Farrell, certified SOLO Wilderness First Aid instructor.
By the end of the course, you’ll have the knowledge, skills, and ability to make sound decisions in emergency situations.

This course satisfies Sierra Club Outings Leader requirements for both front and backcountry outings.

It's time to ring in the new year and celebrate our amazing community.
We hail the turning of the season and our resilience rising from the pandemic. Meet new friends and reconnect with old ones as you enjoy food, drink, music and merriment in a new venue in Oakland, Kehilla. We will provide the main dishes and some beverages. You bring your favorite side dish, dessert, and/or beverage to share (alcohol is allowed). As this is a Synagogue please only bring food that is vegetarian or fish (no shellfish). We'll do a shout out to members who bring the mojo to our club: the outings leaders and those who work behind-the-scenes to keep the club humming. - including unveiling the new Gov Com. Wait...did we mention Dancing? Desserts?
We also ask that you bring your own plate, utensils and cup so we can keep our carbon footprint low.
Registration now open. Free for members, $20 for non-members (includes one-year Rainbow Sierrans membership)
Like all Rainbow Sierrans' outings, camping trips and other events, this party is only made possible by the generous spirit of our volunteers!
