Road Scholar
Program #11509RJ
4 Days | 3 Nights
ACTIVITY LEVEL: Easy
EasyFor people looking to exercise their minds more than their bodies. There’s minimal walking and not too many stairs.
ModerateThese programs get you on your feet and include activities such as walking up to a mile in a day through a city and standing in a museum for a few hours.
ActiveFor people who enjoy walking as much as two miles a day, perhaps to explore historic neighborhoods or a nature trail.
Moderately ChallengingFor hardy explorers who enjoy a good physical challenge, spending most of their days on the go.
ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding — and rewarding — programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.

Geology Of The Pacific Northwest
Peel away the earth and discover its story. You will do just that – with field studies of the geological record of the great ice age floods that created the topography of the Pacific Northwest. Class involves minimal walking to observe rock formations on site – equivalent to less than two city blocks on pavement and dirt road.

David Douglas in the Northwest 1824-34
This romp through Scottish naturalist David Douglas’s eventful life will include time spent tracing his travel routes around the world as well as gentle walks enjoying the flora and fauna that he saw in the Pacific Northwest.

20th Century American Popular Music
This musical journey will feature the songs of Irving Berlin, George Gershwin, Cole Porter and more. Why do these songs stay with us? What is their magic? How did the songwriters put them together? These are a few of the questions that will be explored.


Due to the nature of this program, listening devices are not available.
