Jeffrey Greenburg from NJ Search and Rescue will lead this Wilderness First Aid (WFA) Course. He is a NOLS certified instructor for the WFA Curriculum and takes it a step further by gearing the class to what we encounter on northeast trails! This event is hosted by Sassquad Trail Running at the Trail Conference Headquarters in Mahwah, NJ.
