Outdoor exploration

GeoJourney 2018.

Explore the great outdoors

Outdoor explorations (OE) trips are facilitated in partnership with the amazing staff of Wellness and Recreation. These trips are designed to expose students to a variety of environments, activities, and experiences in the outdoors. OE trips are vehicles for discovery, education, reflection, and adventure. Each trip exposes students to a topic or skill set that is enhanced by time in the outdoors.

In the past, OE has facilitated trips to

  • Asheville, NC to explore the Biltmore Estate, stand up paddleboard, bike tour, and camp
  • Death Valley, the Mojave desert, and Joshua Tree National Park during a spring break road trip
  • Hammocks Beach State Park for a weekend of kayaking and camping in the dunes
  • The Costa Rican cloud forests to hike, zipline, whitewater raft, and learn about ecology
  • The islands of the Bahamas for sailing and tropical ecology
  • Acadia National Park for hiking, camping, biking, and tidepooling
  • Medoc Mountain State Park for meteor shower camping
