Columbus Outdoor Pursuits is a volunteer-based, participatory organization created to provide opportunities and education for outdoor recreation and activities and thereby aid in acquisition of a greater knowledge and appreciation of the out-of-doors.
Provide outdoor recreation education to the public, including safety and technique • Organize and lead outdoor trips • Train our own outdoor leaders • Purchase and maintain a limited amount of equipment for use in our programs and activities • Define outdoor recreation as primarily non-competitive, self-propelled activities such as backpacking, bicycling, kayaking, etc.
Membership information and a schedule of the current month’s activities are on our webpage
Membership is not required to attend all events, though some do require membership due to insurance restrictions and most events have little to no cost.
