Program Description

Our mission is to “Inspire. Educate. Equip. We remove barriers and create access to outdoor experiences.” We are a Pittsburgh-based non-profit connecting people to the benefits of getting outdoors. Since 2001, our team of Outdoor Educators and Volunteer Trip Leaders have guided people of all ages and stages to hike, bike, run, paddle, geocache, and more.

We believe that together we can remove the barriers that stop people from connecting to the outdoors. In the Jefferson region, we have partnered with schools, out-of-school time sites, and community groups to provide programming to youth and seniors. Partnerships have included SHIM, Melting Pot Ministries, Youth Opportunities Development, Clairton School District, Dragon’s Den, MUSA, and more.
