Outdoor Pursuits

Outdoor Pursuits offers many trips, clinics and programs for the Sonoma State University Community each semester!  Our programs include activities such as hiking, backpacking, sea kayaking, whitewater rafting, rock climbing, mountaineering, cycle touring, mountain biking, hot spring soaking, backcountry cooking and camping.  To supplement our programs ODP also offers a range of Wilderness Medicine courses and Wilderness Orientation experiences throughout the year.  While our trips and courses may vary in terms of commitment and physical demands, all trips are designed for those with little or no prior experience in mind.  Outdoor Pursuits trips are a great way to gain knowledge and experience with outdoor skills, make new friends, escape into the natural world and explore the limits of what you are capable of!  Come join us! 
Beginning with its inception in the early 90’s, Outdoor Pursuits has been comprised of a group of SSU students, faculty and staff who share a love for the outdoors and sharing it with others!  At Outdoor Pursuits we consider ourselves stewards of the earth and we are continuously evolving our methods of practicing minimum impact philosophies, educating about sustainability and working to facilitate safe and ecologically sound activities.  In attempting to infuse more sustainable practices in each of our trips all meals are vegetarian and primarily organic.  All trips will include components on Leave No Trace outdoor ethics, principles and practices.
