In the News! Triangle Inner City Outings volunteer and Sierra Club staffer, Carina Bartlett-Loro, made the news along with one of our students at the local Earth Day celebration: Nature lovers find a world of fun at Planet Earth festival

Inner City Outings (ICO) is a community outreach program of the Sierra Club that lets urban youth participate in outdoor, environmentally diverse activities. Volunteers lead a variety of outings from backpacking trips to trail cleanups to canoe trips. ICO volunteers introduce participants to the natural world and teach them how important it is to protect and restore wild places. Forty-five ICO groups partner with local youth-oriented agencies in urban areas throughout the U.S.

Triangle Inner City Outings was founded in 1988 to provide enriching outdoor learning experiences that help youth participants:
  • Overcome fears and misconceptions about the outdoors
  • Develop comfort with and appreciation for the natural environment
  • Develop a basic understanding of how ecosystems work
  • Become protectors of the environment
  • Develop self esteem and leadership skills
  • Experience team approaches to challenges and problem-solving
Triangle Inner City Outings works with several youth organizations.

Special thanks to REI for their generous support of money and equipment for our trips.
