True North Announces New Partnership

True North Wilderness Survival School is proud to officially announce that it is partnering with the Allegheny County Parks Department to run a series of outdoor education programs throughout 2015.  The schedule will include courses in wilderness survival, land navigation, and first-aid, to name just a few.

These events will help to meet several goals all around, but, more importantly, will offer many benefits to the Western Pennsylvania region.

ACPD is eager to develop and manage programs that will help contribute to its mission of enhancing the quality of life and well being of the residents of Allegheny County by showcasing the beauty and diversity of its extensive park system, while also offering outdoor educational opportunities that will help foster a deeper respect for the conservation of its natural and cultural resources.

In turn, True North is excited at the prospect of working with a broader range of outdoor enthusiasts to help develop in them their confidence to explore, help, and lead others in the Great Outdoors.

The first course in our series is an “Introduction to Wilderness Survival” to be held in March, while the second is an “Introduction to Map & Compass” to be held in April.  To learn more about these courses, and to register, please visit our Adventures page.
