Venture Outdoors

 

We are a Pittsburgh-based non-profit connecting people to the benefits of getting outdoors. Since 2001, our team of Outdoor Educators and Volunteer Trip Leaders have guided people of all ages and stages to hike, bike, run, paddle, geocache, and more. We believe that together we can remove the barriers that stop people from connecting to the outdoors. A lack of access to equipment shouldn’t prevent people from exploring our three rivers by kayak. A lack of instruction shouldn’t prevent students from learning to bike for the first time. A lack of community shouldn’t prevent women and minority runners from joining the race.
