Preppy outdoorsy clothing emporium L.L.Bean will hold free "Outdoor Discovery Programs" from August 14 through 30.
The classes are being held in a number of East Coast locations such as Albany, New York; New Rochelle, New York; Gibsonia, Pennsylvania; Downingtown, Pennsylvania; Dedham, MA; and Freeport, Maine. Elk Grove Village, IL is also getting some of the free classes. Activities to be taught include kayaking, standup paddleboarding, archery, clay shooting, and mountain biking.
Many of the slots for free classes are quickly filling up, so we'd recommend registering right away if you don't want to miss out.

No word on whether a dress code of duck boots and pink polo shirts is enforced.
