Get out! (it’s Blog Action Day)

Today is Blog Action Day, a day when bloggers everywhere are all writing about a single topic. This year’s topic is the environment, and there is no better way to appreciate the environment and our place in it than by getting outside.

But, you say, isn’t going to the library (or studying, or sitting at a computer reading blogs) the opposite of getting outside? Well, I’m glad you asked!

Our library has a fantastic collection of materials to support our Recreation Leadership (COCC) and Tourism and Outdoor Leadership (OSU-Cascades) programs, programs that are all about getting people outside. We have software for preparing customized topo maps, all kinds of travel and trail guides, and books to help you learn to cook outdoors, telemark ski, or avoid climbing accidents, just to highlight a few.

Cascades AdventuresIf you’re looking for guided adventures, you might also check out Cascades Adventures‘ outings schedule. These ultimate study breaks are open to the entire COCC/Cascades community (and friends, space permitting), and give you an opportunity to take advantage of the expertise of folks in our outdoor leadership programs. There, you don’t even have to read the manuals, someone else will have done it for you.

Now, stop by the library to get ready, then get out!

    Most of these same fans cannot name their Congressmen, much less identify their positions. ,
