APA Outings Program

APA launched its outings program in 2017 with a focus on visiting special landscapes and communities that are threatened by development, climate change, or other ecological malady. After each trip, we will document what we discover and advocate for protection and action in these places. APA packrafting outings are led by skilled volunteers around the world, and allow APA members to explore amazing landscapes with other stakeholders, writers, filmmakers, policy-makers, and partner organizations.

Goals of the APA Outings Program:

  1. Raise awareness of conservation issues affecting venues for packrafting, both among the packrafting community and policymakers.
  2. Provide opportunities for training and education related to preservation of river corridors, wilderness areas, and other venues for packrafting.
  3. Provide opportunities for the packrafting community to actively participate in the clean-up, preservation, and study of venues for packrafting.
  4. Foster positive relationships between the packrafting community, land managers, public policy makers, conservation groups, the media, and other stakeholders.
  5. Partner with qualified outfitters and guides to provide paddling safety and skills education during outings.
