Imagine never finding a fossil under foot, or discovering deer feeding at dusk, or seeing birds on their spring migration. Many local kids don't have a chance to experience these delights we take for granted. If you’re 18 or older and you’d like to introduce local youngsters to the wonders of the outdoors, Inner City Outings (ICO) needs you.

ICO serves youth ages 8-18. Our outings stress teamwork, teach self-reliance outside an urban setting and encourage kids to take an active role in protecting the environment. The San Antonio group offers a variety of year-round outings experiences, including land- and water-based activities.

Upcoming Events

Note: Our next membership meeting has been postponed until Tuesday, April 8, at 7 p.m. at University Presbyterian Church, 300 Bushnell at Shook. Park in back, come up the middle stairs, turn right at the courtyard, go to building closest to Trinity University and look for Classroom 2.

Future 2014 meetings will be held the first Tuesday of odd numbered months: May 6, July 1, September 2 and November 4.
