Whether you’re a new or experienced hiker, youth or adult, you’ll learn something new about how to safely hike and explore the outdoors.

Presenter Guy Mansfield, Ph.D. is an experienced climber and hiker who has been active in Search and Rescue since 2008. He has served as the  lead Wilderness Navigation instructor for Snohomish County Volunteer Search and Rescue, and has presented at state, national, and international Search & Rescue conferences.

Mansfield is active with Everett Mountain Rescue. Formed in 1954, Everett Mountain Rescue is an all volunteer, non‐profit organization dedicated to saving lives through rescue and mountain safety education. Everett Mountain Rescue works in close coordination with Snohomish County Volunteer Search and Rescue and the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office.

During Search & Rescue missions, Everett Mountain Rescue volunteers routinely encounter larger numbers of hikers and climbers who have been unprepared for their wilderness experience. A small amount of proactive education can lead to better choices, better preparedness, and increased survivability for Northwest hikers.
