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:

The Dept of Science and Technology sponsors an annual outdoor field study, supported by a NASA grant, which takes students to environmentally significant locations in the United States. Recent trips include field visits to the Redwood forests on the California coast, fossil sites in Idaho, coastal areas of Louisiana, and a Florida Evergreen forest. In these settings, students are able to observe the ecological dynamics and the need for protective programs for these unique sites. Sound environmental practices are incorporated into the trips. In addition, the Bryant Outdoor Adventure Club promotes involvement in outdoor activities including kayaking, hiking, apple picking, scuba diving and caving.
