LA GRANDE, Ore. (EOU) – New and diverse courses focusing on outdoor activities are coming to Eastern Oregon University this spring term.

Classes include an introduction to backpacking, hiking/trekking, beginning indoor rock climbing, basic horsemanship and beginning archery and are open to students and community members.

“These courses are a great way to get outside and enjoy the tremendous outdoor opportunities available in eastern Oregon, learn new exciting skills, meet new friends and promote healthy lifestyles,” said Michael Hatch, coordinator of EOU’s Outdoor Program.

The one-credit physical education and sport (PES) 180 level classes are being offered through the Outdoor Program in conjunction with the Physical Activity and Health department.

“All of these activities require little or no experience and provide the fundamentals for additional skills progression and hopefully development of life-long outdoor pursuits,” Hatch added.
