Spring into the Summer Season with Outdoor Pursuits

Enjoy a night of indoor rock climbing at a Portland rock gym on Saturday, May 7! If daunting, dirty boulders are maybe not your thing, join Outdoor Pursuits for an evening of indoor adventures instead! This excursion will be warmer, dryer, and just as fun as a day out on the rocks. Register now for May 7.

In the Wilderness First Aid Certification course, learn how to apply first aid and CPR skills in the backcountry. Participants will gain first-hand experience in responding to medical, environmental, and traumatic emergencies in the outdoors while also earning a CPR certification. There are two parts to this course, online and in-person. The online portion must be completed prior to the in-person certification. The course runs all day from May 18 to May 19, so be sure to register in advance to reserve your space!

OP also has plenty of outdoor gear available for rent throughout the summer! There are items available for surfing, paddle boarding, biking, hiking, camping, along with cruiser bikes. 

Swing by the Outdoor Pursuits office located at 2017 21st Ave. in downtown Forest Grove between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. weekdays (closed Wednesdays) to speak to our fabulous staff, call 503-352-2264, or email us at
