“Last year really changed how I felt about being outside.”
“Climbing, biking, hiking or camping all bring me so much joy and the opportunity to connect and meet some of the most amazing people in the world.”
“I created the @AsianBoulderingCrew Instagram page to enable Asian Americans across the country to see each other and know that there are folx like them that have the same ambitions and face similar challenges.”
“Outside I feel completely myself.”
“Whether you grew up in the concrete jungle or actual jungle, the outdoors has something for everyone.”
“During the height of the pandemic, I sought out ways to bring me joy. Whether it was art, science, food or skating, I tapped into all of my interests as a means of self-care.”
“I remember one of my first road trips to a national park. It was Joshua Tree National Park. I was immediately captivated and hooked by this alien land.”
There are many organizations doing the work to change the narrative of what it means to get outside and who is out there. We’re excited to highlight some of the groups everyone should know about.
