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:

Sustainability is a key part of the outdoors program which follows a ‘leave no trace’ principle. Outdoor Adventures serves the USD community members with opportunities to experience outdoor activities that aim to promote personal growth, leadership development, relationship building and environmental responsibility.
With a focus on outdoor recreation, environmental education, leadership development and team-building, we offer a variety of outings locally, regionally and internationally. Pre-Orientation Adventure, overnight trips, outdoor recreation classes and day trips around San Diego are a few examples. We also operate a resource center and rental shop that provides outdoor recreation equipment and trip planning resources for individuals and groups that choose to venture on their own excursions.
Outdoor Adventures is also a hub for people interested in living an active, outdoor lifestyle that strives to create a balance between humanity and the natural world.
