Stand Up Paddleboarding 

Stand up paddle boarding (SUP) offers a fun way to play on the water, with the added benefit of a full-body workout. And, since you stand at full height on your board, it gives you a unique vantage point for viewing what’s down under the water and out on the horizon. 

Join UREC Outdoors at Beaver Lake to try stand up paddleboarding on June 16 and July 19 from 4:00 PM - 8:00 PM. Enjoy a relaxing trip on the lake! Register at the UREC Member Portal. Reach out to UREC Outdoors with any questions at camp@uark.edu or 479-575-2267.

Boundary Waters Canoeing | Join UREC Outdoors to explore the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness. This will involve exploring some of the most remote places in the United States. This trip will be strenuous including carrying a fully weighted backpack and 30-60lb canoe across various portages and uneven terrain. The difficulty makes it a great trip. This has a required pre trip meeting on May 26th from 6:30 PM - 8:00 PM. 

While we don't have any hiking and backpacking trips this summer, check back in August for the fall trips schedule. In the meantime, if you want to make your own trip check out our resources for spaces to explore and our equipment you can rent to help you get outside.

Painting a Perspective - Mural Bike Tour | If you can’t join us for one of our mural bike tours, you can use the resources below to go on your own self-guided tour across Fayetteville. There are two routes to choose from, both of which are close to the University of Arkansas campus. Resources on how to rent a bike, maps, outdoor safety, and discussion of social justice and unity can also be found at UREC Outdoors. When visiting these murals keep the three questions below in mind: What do you SEE?  What do you FEEL?  What can we DO?
