    Hike trails while you learn how to use a GPS unit.  (We’ll be using the Garmin 62s GPS, provided for each person.)  Knowing how to use GPS is a great skill for your resume, and also really useful for any outdoor trips you take! You’ll also learn the basics of Geocaching. Dress for the weather, and learn all sorts of cool things a GPS will do for you!

  • Image preview Caving #2

    Trip sign-up begins: Friday, October 24
    Pre-Trip Meeting: Tuesday, November 11 at 5:00pm


    Thousands of years ago the lava from a spectacular volcanic eruption created these lava tube caves at the base of Mt. Adams. These awesome natural formations stay relatively dry and at a constant temperature of about 50 F, making them ideal for caving. This is not a good trip for you if you are claustrophobic- but if you don’t mind small spaces, this is really interesting.

    Come join us on an excursion to see some of the Gorge’s lesser known falls, and take in the autumn scenery. The natural power and beauty of these waterfalls has to be seen to be believed.

    Trip sign-up begins: Friday, October 17
    Pre-Trip Meeting: Tuesday, November 11 at 4:30pm


    Oregon has an enormous number of mushroom species and it’s no wonder, with all this rain! As long as you’re living in Oregon and since they taste so good, you might as well be introduced to some of them. We’ll spend two nights at the Oregon Dunes, hiking the largest coast sand dunes in the world and searching for mushrooms. Conditions permitting, this trip culminates in a mouth-watering mushroom feast!
