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:

CSU, Chico's outdoor adventure program, Adventure Outings, provides trips throughout northern California. All trips are lead by student trip leaders. We offer 60 - 70 trips a year. Trips offered include, backpacking, rafting, rock climbing, caving and day hiking. All trips emphasize minimum impact outdoor ethics. Leave No Trace principles are taught and followed on every trip. As of spring 2011 we have started a composting initiative. We are encouraging participants to package their organic waste on trips.
