Green River Preserve's high school expedition trips are adventures and community building programs designed to develop outdoor skills, teamwork, and leadership opportunities. GRP offers four different expedition trips: Blue Ridge, a two week backpacking and whitewater canoe trip in the Appalachian Mountains of North Carolina Mountains; Outer Banks, a two week backpacking and sea kayaking rip on the Outer Banks of North Carolina; Trail Blazers, a three week leadership service trip including a backpacking and canoe trip; and Western Expeditions, a three week backpacking and white water rafting trip in the San Juan Mountains of Southwest Colorado.
