Sign-Up Policy: Please contact the leader to sign up for a spot
on the outing; no show-n-gos. Unless stated, fees cover only outing costs. Fees for day outings may be collected
at the trailhead, but sign up after the cut-off date, or the day before the outing should be avoided. Fees for overnight
outings are collected in advance, with at least 50% due with sign-up. Cancellations after cut-off date can result in loss
of deposit to cover trip costs. Cancellations after wait-list starts can result in loss of deposit, which will go to wait-listed
participants to discourage frivolous sign-ups.
Sponsored outings are lead by a certified Sierra Club Outings Leader, trained in CPR/First Aid, and often feature a local authority as a guide.

Woods & Wetlands Supported Outings
Supported Outings are led by members and friends of W & W, but are not official Club events. If you are arranging an outing and seek companions, let us know and we'll list it here!
E-mail us (Outings) with suggestions
