Outdoor Recreation & Education

Have You Had An Adventure Lately?

Did you know that adventure is actually a state of mind? We recognize that people in Missoula have all different shapes, incomes, genders, sizes, ages, colors, and abilities. It's our goal to provide programs that fit the needs of the people of Missoula. After all, we are your community Parks and Recreation department! From walking tours of our city parks, volunteer projects, white water rafting, rock climbing, and leadership camps, we can offer adventure on every level.

Program Goals

  • To provide enriching, positive, and safe experiences through a variety of outdoor-based experiential activities and skills.
  • To foster a sense of community and be a resource in Western Montana by facilitating productive group interactions and learning opportunities.
  • To offer our professional staff the opportunity to expand and sharpen their wealth of outdoor skills.

 Outdoor Adventures
