Queer Boundary Waters Trip with Mikah Meyer

REI Co-op is proud to sponsor a Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness expedition specifically for a group of outdoor industry and adventure community members who identify as LGBTQ+. Ely Outfitting Company is guiding this trip in collaboration with Mikah Meyer, founder of the Outside Safe Space program, and Save the Boundary Waters. The Outside Safe Space program promotes welcoming spaces in the outdoors community for people who identify as LGBTQ+. The mission of Save the Boundary Waters, led by Northeastern Minnesotans for Wilderness, is to permanently protect the Boundary Waters from copper mining. Learn more at the links below. Consider donating, volunteering, or purchasing Outside Safe Space merchandise to support these partners. Outside Safe Space stickers and pins are also available for purchase in local REI stores. While this trip is full, we hope to spark conversation on how our community can work together to make outside spaces welcoming for all people. Follow @MikahMey to hear how the trip goes!
