It’s no secret that Chattanooga, with all of its natural beauty, is a magnet for lovers of the great outdoors. Citizens and tourists alike enjoy our mountains, trails, rivers, and lakes. However, it’s easy to forget the potential hazards and “what-ifs” when you’re in the midst of the Scenic City’s beautiful scenes. Luckily, the fine folks at the annual Southeast Wilderness Medical Conference are looking out for you. All you need is $20 and some free time on Friday, June 21 between 4:30 and 7 p.m. to attend a seminar called “Wilderness Safety for the Outdoor Enthusiast.” In addition to brushing up on the standard lions and tigers and bears (oh my!) avoidance tactics, you’ll also have an opportunity to learn about snakebites, insect stings, inclement weather, and a multitude of other injuries, ailments and potentially hazardous situations.

So whether your outdoor sport includes paddles, wheels, ropes or your bare feet, make your way to The Church on Main at 1601 Rossville Ave., to ensure you’re prepared for the unexpected. Visit outdoorschattanooga.com for more info.
