Outdoor Programs

Trips

The Outdoor Program provides a common adventurer willing to share experience and educate participants about Leave No Trace principles. Each participant is a common adventurer and is responsible for their own decisions and behavior. Participants are expected to conduct themselves in a manner that is courteous and considerate of the diverse group of individuals that may also be participating in the activity. Please email Melissa Bergeland for information regarding trips.
