  • Environmental Traveling Companions (ETC)

    Environmental Traveling Companions (ETC) opens the beauty and challenge of the great outdoors to people with disabilities and disadvantaged youth. Every year, more than 2,000 people join ETC to raft whitewater rivers, ski alpine meadows, kayak the waters of the Golden Gate and Tomales Bay, and build leadership skills. ETC trips enable participants to access the wilderness and develop an environmental stewardship ethic. Since 1972, ETC has shared outdoor adventures with disadvantaged youth and people of all ages, including those with visual or hearing-impairments, physical or developmental disabilities, and life-threatening illnesses. We also offer fundraising adventures for the general public and corporations to raise awareness of our mission. We welcome agencies, schools, and individuals of all abilities.
