Discounted Courses for Volunteers!

Are you interested in a way to help protect the environment and save some money on a True North course too?

On Sunday, October 6, True North will spend the day volunteering in a wonderful event that will benefit, not just our local communities, but our entire region.  We don’t want, though, to keep all the fun to ourselves … True North wants You to join in too!

Organized by Paddle Without Pollution (PWP), the purpose of this event is to clean up debris along the banks of the Kiskiminetas River near Leechburg, Pennsylvania.  PWP staff and many volunteers will paddle their kayaks and canoes in search of the debris that sadly pollutes our waterways like bottles, tires, televisions, bicycles, and plastic industrial drums (to name just a few), while other staff and volunteers manage what is brought to shore for pick up later by the local government for proper disposal.

To learn more about PWP and their mission, be sure to check out their website.  Also, definitely check out their video below.

But before you do, True North wants to offer you an incentive to join in their effort.  If you participate in the Kiski River event, True North will discount you $50 from the price of one of its subsequent survival or wilderness first aid courses on their 2013 event calendar.

Why?  Because at True North, we believe so much in the mission of PWP, not to mention that we equally love our region and its environment, that we want to help as much as we can.

So, join in a great cause, save some money, learn some invaluable skills … and have much fun too!
