Snake Avoidance Training for dogs and their owners @ Oso Lake

Snake Avoidance Training at Oso Lake     March 30th & April 27th 2014  7 a.m. – 1 p.m.

Curiosity killed the cat as the saying goes. It also kills dogs that are curious about snakes. Dogs have no natural fear of snakes, so when a dog encounters one his first instinct is to get close and smell it. He wants to investigate, which is why so many dogs are bitten on the head, chest and face. Even after being bitten, most dogs don’t consider a snake to be a bad thing. They are not “snake-proofed.” The pain comes so much later it is not connected to the snakebite at all.

 Sometimes referred to as “snake-proofing,” or “snake-breaking,” It only takes a short time to make your dog aware that snakes are BAD, and that can save your dog’s life and possibly your own. Take the time to protect BOTH of you!

Introduction to Outdoor Leader Skills (IOLS) @ Oso Lake
Apr 11 @ 5:00 pm – Apr 12 @ 8:00 pm

INTRODUCTION to OUTDOOR LEADER SKILLS (IOLS) provides the opportunity for registered adults to learn the basic outdoor Scout skills required to be a leader in a Boy Scout troop or Varsity team.

Outdoor skills are critical to the success of the Scouting program, and Introduction to Outdoor Leader Skills will provide leaders with the basic outdoor skills information needed to start a program right. The skills taught are based on the outdoor skills found in The Boy Scout Handbook. The course is also ideal for Boy Scout and Varsity adult leaders because it focuses on skills that build confidence and competence in leaders conducting outdoor camping experiences.

To receive credit for participation and completion of the course you must be present for the whole session.

Any registered adult 18 years + may register for courses in any district and/or council.
