Outdoor Recreation programs strive to be a community leader in providing access to our area’s variety of outdoor opportunities. To do so, we offer three unique program buckets – knowledge, skills, and leisure. Within these buckets, we have youth, adult, and family programs that are designed to educate and inspire participants to connect with themselves, one another, and the outdoors.

Locations and dates are highly dependent on weather conditions. Please see below for updated 2023 session information.
