These individuals will be involved in monthly planning meetings where they can sign-up for trip leading opportunities. From here, they will work to plan exciting outdoor trips using public transit working with community groups, collaborators, and sponsors!

Adventures planned by Adventure Leaders will be following the guidelines and schedule of the Adventure 3(65) project, but outside of this will be largely self-directed. Adventures may take any form, but should be using public or active transit and exploring local spaces of environmental or cultural importance within HRM.
