Wilderness Classes

IMG_3196“Thousands of tired, nerve-shaken, over-civilized people are beginning to find out that going to the mountains is going home; that wildness is a necessity; and that mountain parks and reservations are useful not only as fountains of timber and irrigating rivers, but as fountains of life.” -John Muir

Each quarter, Prof. Herbst offers experiential courses in the wilderness of Southern California, in partnership with Outback Adventures.   Programs for 2015-16:

Desert Seminar in the Anza-Borrego Desert State Park

(Fall and Winter, 1 credit)

Mountain Seminar at Mt. San Jacinto State Park (Spring, 1 credit)

“Walk away quietly in any direction and taste the freedom of the mountaineer. Camp out among the grasses and gentians  of glacial meadows, in craggy garden nooks full of nature’s darlings. Climb the mountains and get their good tidings, Nature’s peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees.”  – John Muir
