Venture Outdoors? That’s the outfit that runs kayak rentals on the North Shore and at North Park, right? Well, yes—but this unique Pittsburgh nonprofit offers a great deal more. Every week, Venture Outdoors’ staff and volunteers lead an amazing array of outdoor activities for the public, on water and dry land. Ventures on tap include hiking, fishing, paddling, biking, and more. The schedule includes special Pride excursions, learning sessions for beginners and children, art and history walks, and evening and nighttime adventures—both in the city and surrounding areas. Some activities are free of charge and some carry moderate fees. See the events calendar on the Venture Outdoors website (linked above) and reserve in advance for the activities you’d like to enjoy. We’ll see you somewhere under the sun or stars! (M.V.)
