Snow Hiking in Mount San Jacinto State Park

For the past 10 years, Outdoor Outreach’s youth development programming has included annual snow hiking trips to Mount San Jacinto State Park. For many of our students, having grown up in sunny southern California, Outdoor Outreach is able to provide their first experiences  sledding, having a snowball fight or making a snow angel.

This year, our Adventure Clubs each experienced a full day outing to Mount San Jacinto State Park. During those trips, students observed wildlife and learned about the importance of winter snowpack to support southern California’s threatened water resources. They also had plenty of time to play in the snow with their friends and ride the park’s aerial tram!

Outdoor Outreach would like to extend a special thank you to the Papoose Conservation Wildlife Foundation for their support of our Adventure Club snow hikes this year. Our youth are grateful for your support in making these trips possible.

Through our partnership with the California State Parks Foundation, Mount San Jacinto State Park was just one of the many state parks our youth have visited over the past several months.

Also, a huge thank you to SmartWool for your donation of hiking socks and Chaos for donating beanies for all of our youth. Your contributions made this memorable day even better!
