Regarding Herbert Wellness Center Membership

Outdoor Adventures is a partnership between the Department of Housing and Residential Life and the Department of Wellness and Recreation. Outdoor Adventures is managed by DWR but funded by HRL. Herbert Wellness Center membership does not include Outdoor Adventures because the fees paid for membership do not contribute to Outdoor Adventures funding.  Therefore, Outdoor Adventures and Herbert Wellness Center memberships are separate fees.
