About CENTRED OUTDOORS
Stress Less, Discover more!
A program of ClearWater Conservancy, Centred Outdoors is an invitation to everyone, of every age, background, or fitness level, to explore and enjoy outdoor recreation destinations throughout Centre and surrounding counties. There is never a cost to participate and events are always open to the public.
Awe for all
Centred Outdoors is committed to addressing and lowering the barriers to outdoor programming to ensure that people of all identities and abilities have access to opportunities to enjoy the outdoors in a way that is comfortable, safe, and fun. Through accessible and inclusive outings, we can support healthy communities and the growth of more diverse participation in the conservation movement.
love where you live
Centred Outdoors promotes a community that continually visits, enjoys, and cares for the region’s natural assets. Gratitude for local landscapes and wildlife grows when experienced firsthand, and a desire to protect them for future generations also deepens. Through guided outings and wellness activities, Centred Outdoors participants experience the connection between time spent outdoors, improved health and wellness, and the need for local land and water conservation efforts.
pARTNERS MAKE IT POSSIBLE
Centred Outdoors originally launched in 2017 with support from a Centre Foundation “Centre Inspires” grant. The success of this program has continued with additional backing by Pennsylvania DCNR, Mount Nittany Health, the Hamer Foundation, and the Richard King Mellon Foundation.
Now in its seventh season, Centred Outdoors continues to connect people with natural places and each other to benefit communities, people, and the environment. Community support also makes Centred Outdoors possible - thank you for considering a donation through a donation to ClearWater Conservancy to support these ongoing efforts.
