CEDAR FALLS, Iowa -- The outdoor recreation program at the University of Northern Iowa provides many outdoor and environmental opportunities for students, faculty, staff and community members. Community members can rent a variety of equipment including canoes, kayaks and skis, to name a few.

The outdoor recreation program also hosts hiking, camping, rock climbing trips and more, open to anyone 18 years and older with an adventurous spirit. All outdoor trips are based on a "common adventurer" philosophy, which states that the goal of any adventure is to achieve an enjoyable and worthwhile experience while displaying the greatest respect for the natural environment.

"Our goal at UNI Outdoors is to offer something for everyone," says Andy Martin, outdoor recreation coordinator at UNI. "We only ask that you bring an adventuresome spirit as we challenge you to walk a different path."

Community members interested in renting equipment or learning more about trips can visit or contact Martin at 319-273-7164 or
