  • Image preview All Day: Sea Kayak Day Trip #1

    Trip sign-up begins: Friday, September 2 at 9:00am

    Pre-Trip Meeting: Tuesday, September 20 at 4:45pm

     

    Join us for a paddling excursion on one of the area’s great waterways.  Paddling location is dependent on various reasons, but you’re guaranteed to paddle through beautiful scenery and see some wildlife–including eagles, and great blue herons, among others.  No previous experience required, though a little bit of upper body strength is helpful.  

  • Image preview All Day: Trail Engineering Clinic on the PCT

    Trip sign-up begins: Friday, September 2 at 9:00 am

    Pre-Trip Meeting: Tuesday, September 20 at 4:30 pm


    The Pacific Crest Trail (PCT) stretches 2,650 spectacular miles, from the border with Mexico to Canada. We’ll head up to a section on Mt. Hood to learn how hiking trails are engineered to minimize erosion, maximize sustainability, and optimize the wilderness experience for different types of users. You’ll have the opportunity to get dirty and use trail tools to restore trail on Saturday, stay in a campground Saturday night, then take a hike on Sunday morning before heading back to campus. As a bonus, Dr. Paul Allen will be there to share his experience working on trails!

  • Image preview All Day: Backpack Mt. St. Helens

    Trip sign-up begins: Friday, September 2 at 9:00am

    Pre-Trip Meeting: Tuesday, September 20 at 5:30pm

     

    Explore the trails of the Northwest’s most active volcano; observe close-up the aftermath of the 1980 eruption and the area’s natural recovery. Backpack in on Friday evening by headlamp. The next day, we’ll hike through islands of old growth forests shielded from the volcano’s fury by lucky geographic placement with everything we need for the weekend on our backs. Discover great views, ripe huckleberries, and stunning scenery at this national monument, known to Native Americans as “Loowit.”  Inclement weather alternative: Deschutes River Canyon.

  • Image preview All Day: Mt. St. Helens Dayhike #1

    Trip sign-up begins: Friday, September 9 at 9:00am

    Pre-Trip Meeting: Tuesday, September 27 at 5:00pm

     

    Take a hike along a forested ridge near this iconic volcano. You’ll hike through forest left untouched by the violent 1980 eruption, including a patch of old growth forest with large hemlock and fir trees draped with lichens. At our turn around point we’ll be in the historic blast zone and see trees killed by superheated gas released during the mountain’s last major awakening.  *If the weather is bad, this trip will go east, to the Klickitat River Gorge for a great hike in the (usually) drier rain shadow of the Cascades.
