What do you do when a medical emergency happens in a remote location? Would you recognize the signs of hypothermia in your scouting troop? How would you handle a sprained ankle on a family backpacking trip? Merry Lea will host its annual wilderness first aid workshop on Thursday and Friday, August 28 and 29, 2014, from 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.
