Introduction to Expedition Kayaking
May31st-June 8th 2020
This non-credit course is designed to introduce students to the art of expedition tripping with inflatable kayaks. We will float down Birch Creek as it flows out of the White Mountains and heads down towards the Yukon. This float is 110 miles of mostly Class I and II water with one Class III section that can be run or portaged. Birch Creek is a National Wild and Scenic River which starts as a quick narrow stream and becomes slow meandering river as it heads towards the Yukon flats. The students will be involved with all aspects of planning and executing this awesome wilderness trip. Sign up on UAOnline through UAF Summer Session.
Outdoor Adventures also offers a variety of classes ranging from Ice Climbing to Mountaineering, Wilderness First Aid and Advanced Wilderness Leadership.
