Exloring UAS' backyard

Starting Spring 2018 the UAS Recreation Center and Outdoor Studies (ODS) will be teaming up to offer outdoor trips to the UAS community.

This program will utilize the skill and experience of our Outdoor Studies students (ODS) to guide outdoor trips for the UAS student body. These trips will vary from learn to ski days at Eaglecrest, snowshoeing and skiing in our backyard, cabin over-nighters, hiking Juneau trails, to paddle boarding in the spring. The REC Center provides the gear, ODS the experience and guidance, with students benefiting by getting out and engaging with our environment.

See you outdoors!

Outings are currently being planned for the spring semester. As the schedule is planned it will be posted here as well as in the campus and REC Center calendars. A good place for announcements on outings will be the REC Center Facebook page as well. Many trips will have a limit on participation due to equipment. If trip group size is limited by equipment, sign-ups will be on a first-come basis.
