School’s back in session and the smoke keeps lingering but we’re not ready to hang up the bikes, put away the clubs, or coil the ropes just yet. OAS is offering an expanded line up of fall programs as well as assisting with numerous community events from mid-September through October. Check out these offerings and join us for some cooler weather activities!

Details: OAS is working on a partnership outing to provide our first official day of outdoor adaptive climbing. Transportation will be available to and from OAS to Smith Rock. This will be open to all populations, but for individuals with mobility impairments, OAS will work with each individually on access to the climbing area, which involved very steep grades and dirt trails.
