The public is invited on all trips unless otherwise indicated.

Please contact trip leaders before the trip

  • to check for last-minute changes, and
  • so the leaders can estimate how many people will be participating.

Please consider car-pooling and sharing the cost of gas.

listing all outings from all chapters. If our chapter isn’t going there soon,
another chapter may be.
