Twenty Seven students recently spent the day whitewater rafting along a 15-mile stretch of the Indian and Hudson Rivers—a beautiful patch of wilderness in the heart of the Adirondacks.
As part of the new Live Now program at SUNY Potsdam, the trip is one of many being offered this year, bringing together diverse groups of students to explore Northern N.Y., and the Adirondack Mountains. A collaborative effort between the Center for Diversity, the Wilderness Education Program, Venture Outdoors, and the Adirondack Diversity Initiative, one of the goals of the program is to introduce BIPOC students to outdoor recreation and wilderness education career paths.
Upcoming trips include a zip line & ropes course, bowling in Saranac Lake, and snow tubing at Titus Mountain.
