Trip sign-up begins: Friday, March 16

Pre-Trip Meeting: Tuesday, April 17th at 5:00

Join psychology professor Jolina Ruckert for a hike to discuss the human relationship with nature, and the psychology of why we go outside. We plan to go to Laurelhurt park in SE as well as a hike in the Gorge where we will be talking about the outdoor appeal, as well as the various degrees of authenticity through which humans interact with nature. We will be going to two separate locations to compare how we interact with nature in different settings.
