Texas Outdoor Leadership Conference
Angelo State University, Outdoor Adventures, is excited to announce that it is hosting the 2013 Texas Outdoor Leadership Conference (TOLC) on January 25-27, 2013. This student-focused regional conference is an excellent opportunity for those within the outdoor education and recreation industry to gather and share ideas. The educational sessions on the Saturday and Sunday of the conference will cover a variety of topics ranging from risk management procedures to empirical research findings on the effects of rock climbing on bone mineral density.
This year’s theme, Dynamic Adventures in a Changing Environment, puts a focus on the ever changing environment in which our programs take place. Natural disasters, the fiscal environment, and technology have all had an impact on outdoor education / recreation programming. This three-day event provides the opportunity for practitioners and students to gather and discuss their adaptions on a local scale.
