Event Description

Registration ends TODAY! Don’t miss your chance to register for the Spring Break Trip to Big Bend National Park, offered by the Adventure Program, part of Campus Recreation.

Join us for an epic multi-day exploration of Big Bend National Park in Southwest Texas from March 8 – 16, 2019. We will explore the low deserts that border the Rio Grande River to the high mountains of the Chisos Basin. Big Bend is an oasis that supports a multitude of plant and animal species including the black bear and the mountain lion. You’ll gain backcountry living skills all while hiking, camping, and backpacking through this vast wilderness, including:

• Emory Peak – the tallest peak in the park at 7,825 feet above sea level.
• Langford Hot Springs – a naturally occurring spring excellent for relaxation and stargazing.

Cost $500 for students and includes all meals, transportation, entrance fees, and equipment.

A mandatory pre-trip meeting is from 4-6 p.m. February 26.

Registration closes at 4 p.m. February 26.
