On Saturday, Oct. 4, the outdoors club went to Battle Creek Regional Park for a hike. The hike was open to people all members of the SPA community, even people who are not a part of the group.

Seniors Emilia Hoppe and Hannah Scott started this club this year and hope that more students will become more appreciative of the outdoors.

I hope that through this club others will discover the same love I have for hiking and spending time outdoors.”

— Emilia Hoppe

“Hiking is something that Hannah and I both love to do and that I only discovered fairly recently. We live in such a beautiful place that people don’t get to experience enough. We want to make the outdoors more accessible to everyone and provide opportunities to enjoy and play in the natural world,” Hoppe said.

In addition, Hoppe highlighted some of her and Hannah’s goals for the club this year.

“I hope that through this club others will discover the same love I have for hiking and spending time outdoors. Ultimately, I think that spending more time outdoors will increase our desire to protect the Earth and take more action to clean up the environment,” Hoppe said.

The outdoor club plans to have a sledding and hot chocolate party after midterm exams and an outdoor service field trip later this year.
