Top five reasons to join S.O.L.A.R.

  1. Experience the outdoors as you never have before. Hike under a star-filled sky... backpack through a virgin forest... hunt for trilobites in a fossil-rich riverbed... crawl on hands and knees through underground caverns... dog-sled across the tundra... climb a frozen waterfall... conquer a summit. S.O.L.A.R.'s adventures are limited only by our imaginations.
  2. Learn the ins and outs of outdoor adventure. Check out our classes/activities page. Whether your idea of roughing it is a Budget Inn or you're fresh from conquering the Himalayas, you will find something new to learn at S.O.L.A.R.
  3. Form lasting friendships with other like-minded people. Read the testimonials of the steering committee members in their biographies on the Steering Committee page. If you think you're alone in your appreciation of the outdoors, you're in for a wonderful surprise.
  4. Get quite a return on your membership fees. Several outfitter stores offer discounts of up to 20 percent to S.O.L.A.R. members. You can borrow gear from S.O.L.A.R.'s extensive equipment list with just a refundable deposit. Get a free monthly newsletter recapping past trips and describing upcoming adventures. Gain access to our Yahoo group where you can post questions to be answered by other members. Learn about the outdoors through one of our many classes and workshops or take fantastic trips at or near cost. Never has so much fun been so inexpensive!
  5. Develop your leadership and teamwork skills. Plan a trip, teach a class, or hold an office.
