Welcome to the Wilderness Adventures Section!
We're dedicated to exploring and preserving the outdoors, with trips that range from urban walks and dayhikes in the local mountains to weekend lodge excursions, backpacks, ski/ snowshoe outings, and bus trips to far-flung places.
We welcome individuals, couples and families of all ages and from all geographic regions on our outings.
About the Wilderness Adventures Section
We believe that when you're passionate about the outdoors you work to protect it. We help people discover and enjoy the earth's wilderness, mountains, wetlands, woodlands, seashores, rivers, desert and plains.
Our outings take place all throughout Los Angeles, Orange and Ventura counties, as well as Yosemite, the Sierra Nevada and beyond. We've taken groups to the Grand Canyon, the Humboldt redwoods, Lassen Volcanic National Park, Bryce and Zion National Parks and more.
Geologist Bill Neill will be our guide for this all-day car-caravan geology tour sponsored by the Natural Science Section, the Pasadena Group, and the Wilderness Adventures Section. We’ll meet at 8:30 AM in Calabasas for a morning tour to view sedimentary rocks formed when Southern California was an eroding volcanic chain. We’ll eat lunch and discuss the geologic history of California; then during the afternoon, we’ll caravan west to Kanan Dume Road and south to the coast, stopping at exposures that record the early development of the San Andreas Fault. For more information and to sign up, send an email message to trip leader Ginny Heringer at email@example.com. This trip satisfies one day of the Environmental Awareness credit for prospective I-rated leaders. Physical Difficulty: The morning hike is about 1.3 mile roundtrip on a steep graded dirt road; the afternoon tour includes a stairway to the beach and walking 1200 feet on firm beach sand. Leaders Ginny Heringer and Pam Allen.
