A brief description of the program:
Outdoor Excursions is a program of UCR Recreation and has been serving the UCR community for over 20 years. Our mission is to provide a variety of programs and services emphasizing safety, skill development, environmental awareness, and community. Our trip program provides opportunities in hiking, backpacking, kayaking, snorkeling, surfing, caving, climbing, paddleboarding, rafting, snowboarding, snowshoeing, and more. All of our trip leaders are trained to the level equal to or exceeding Leave No Trace trainers during our Leader Expedition (a 5-6 day training consisting of backpacking, kayaking, and/or other outdoor living skills), and during mid-year leadership workshops. For more information about our program contact: Jen Hopper jennifer.hopper@ucr.edu
