Outdoor Adventures Fall Trips
We have put together a schedule of trips and activities for the fall 2020 semester. These trips include a wide variety of activities and trips such as ice climbing, hiking in the Alaska range and a float on the Chena River. Check out the trips and sign up through myNookRec or by calling or stopping by the Outdoor Adventures office on the west end of the SRC.
We have a wide range of summer gear to help you get out and enjoy the best kind of distancing, getting away in the backcountry. We rent rafts, canoes, kayaks, and stand up paddleboards as well as many of the camping necessities. Check out our rental list for all the gear that is available.
This semester we are offering a wide variety of outdoor events to help you get outside, be active, and explore!
