  • Image preview All Day: Sea Kayak Day Trip #2
    Trip Sign Up Begins: 3/17/2017
    Sea kayaking around Oregon can bring you to scenery hard to see otherwise. We will kayak around Scappoose Bay or Sauvie Island.  Both of these areas are tidal and adjacent to the mighty Columbia River. Winding waterways take kayakers through wetland floodplain forests and marshlands.  Eagles, swans, and Sandhill cranes are often seen, and if you’re lucky, you may spot one of the resident river otters. Come paddle with us!

  • Image preview All Day: Deschutes Rafting #2
    Trip Sign Up Begins: 3/17/2017
    Central Oregon’s Deschutes River features seven major rapids in twelve miles, making this one of the premier rafting rivers in the state. You will get wet, and you need to paddle hard! This trip is not recommended for non-swimmers, although you’ll be led by experienced guides, and everyone has to wear a PFD on the river.  If you like whitewater—this is an awesome time!

  • Image preview All Day: Backpack Cathrine Creek
    Trip Sign Up Begins: 3/10/2017
    Visit the dry, eastern part of the Columbia Gorge at Catherine Creek. If you are up for a somewhat strenuous climb uphill, you will be rewarded with wildflowers, views of the Columbia river gorge and Mt. Hood, and a secluded campsite. Poison oak, ticks, and rattle snakes can be common in April, but well worth the risk to explore this beautiful area! You will leave early Saturday morning and return Sunday in time for dinner.
