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:

Two freshman communities,WC (Westhampton College) Outdoor Adventure Program and RC (Richmond College) Xtreme, participate in weekend activities such as whitewater rafting, indoor rock climbing, hiking on local trails, snow tubing and skiing at local resorts, orienteering and tracking, and backpacking. An upper classmen community, Earth Lodge participates in comparable practices that include hiking and camping in state and national parks. The university is also home to individual student led groups such as the University of Richmond outdoors club and the Rock Climbing Club. These communities and groups promote the No Trace principles by engaging and learning about the environment that they are enjoying. In addition, these groups make it in their best efforts to plan ahead and travel by trail, concentrate their activity, clean up after themselves, and leave what they find behind.
