Posting Guidelines

Exercise discretion in posting to the group. Post only items that are relevant to Explorers Club of Pittsburgh, and please keep your postings brief. To share a lot of information that only applies to a few club members (for example, to plan an outing requiring signup, shared expenses and carpooling), post a short announcement, and ask anyone interested to email you directly to request more information.

Adopting the motto "Research, Education, and Adventure" in 1947, for three generations the ECP has provided the opportunity to learn new skills and meet new friends who share a willingness to accept the physical and mental challenges of outdoor exploration and adventure.
