Recommended Clothing:
 Sturdy Shoes — Gym shoes or hiking boots are fine during warm weather. For early spring,
fall and winter, hiking or other boots are often necessary for warmth. No sandals or dress
shoes.
 Layered Clothing — You can always take clothing off, but you cannot put on what you don’t
have! Start with a light layer like a tee-shirt (sleeveless and tank tops are not allowed) and
jeans or sweatpants. Add a long sleeve top, sweater, and jacket. Knee-length shorts are
fine in hot months, but keep in mind it is often cool in the morning. Add additional layer
for the winter months and subtract layers for the summer.
 Hats, Gloves, & Wool Socks — Up to 90% of our body heat is lost through our extremities.
Add these essentials to your daypack. A brimmed hat is nice for sunny days.
 Raingear — Ponchos or rain suits are needed in wet weather.
We are outside — rain or shine!
