Participants find themselves at the mountains, rivers, deserts, and coasts that span across Oregon, California, and Washington. College Outdoors’ trips are open to Lewis & Clark undergraduates, graduate students, law students, faculty, and staff.  Trips promise friendly people, fresh air, and fantastic scenery.

College Outdoors offers practical leadership opportunities. Students are encouraged to get involved with College Outdoors by volunteering.  Continued involvement can lead to trip leading opportunities and other staff positions.
