Venture Outdoors? That’s the outfit that runs the kayak rental on the North Shore and 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. Bicycling events range from long rides to gentle outings for beginners. The schedule includes rock climbing occasionally, and fishing frequently. If walking is your speed, the selection is vast: Venture Outdoors has nature hikes, urban neighborhood hikes, and even a South Side Art and Beer Hike. The group also conducts a variety of excursions and learning sessions in kayaking, paddleboarding, etc. June is a month loaded with events throughout the Pittsburgh area, so it’s a great time to get acquainted with Venture Outdoors. Check the website, and we’ll see you somewhere under the sun or stars. (M.V.)
