Outdoor Adventures is funded by the Outdoor Equity Grants Program, created through AB 209 and administered by California State Parks, Office of Grants and Local Services. CRPD was awarded $347,550 to go towards establishing a program for local activities and trips to natural areas for underserved communities.
Outdoor Adventures has two elements with one being activities in the community and the other being nature area trips outside of the community. Activities in the community may include a community tree planting, creek clean up and bike maintenance workshops. Nature area trips may include camping trips, hiking outings, bike rides, cooking demonstrations and more!
This program is led by the CRPD Teen Adventure Group (TAG) and includes activities specifically for teens as well as activities for all ages. Teens interested in joining TAG are encouraged to the monthly meetings to see what the program is all about. Meetings are held on the second Thursday of every month from 6 – 7:30 p.m. at the Neil Orchard Senior Activities Center located at 3480 Routier Road, Sacramento, CA 95827. TAG members will learn how to plan and execute events, participate in mentoring and career workshops, address youth and teen related issues pertaining to services and safe spaces, develop positive life and decision-making skills and learn to effect change through cultivation of leadership qualities by connecting with the community.
