Does the institution have a wilderness or outdoors program that organizes hiking, backpacking, kayaking, or other outings for students and follows Leave No Trace principles?:
A brief description of the program:
Bellevue College's Wellness Center focuses on providing classes, activities, and information promoting the physical, psychosocial and environmental components of health. Each quarter, the Wellness Center organizes outdoor recreational activities such as hikes or overnight bike rides for students, staff, and faculty to explore all our natural surroundings have to offer. The program also offers a Wilderness Skills Certificate that prepares students for a wide range of personal or professional opportunities in recreation, outdoor leadership and education. In both the Wellness Center outings and Wilderness Skills courses, Leave No Trace principles are followed in order to minimize impacts and teach responsible and respectful outdoor behaviors.
