Wild Diversity helps to create a personal connection to the outdoors for Black, Indigenous, all People of Color (BIPOC) & the LGBTQ2S+ communities, through outdoor adventures and education.
Bottom Line for Portland
We believe that Wild Diversity is the future. That a world in which BIPOC and LGBTQ2S+ folks feel more connected to the outdoors is inherently a better world – one in which people are more aligned with the planet. Our work is to provide opportunities for our community to cultivate these connections for themselves – finding that deep and inherent knowledge that they, too, are outdoorists. And that the outdoors will be better for it.
This is the very work of Wild Diversity: Inviting us out into the woods. To find each other. Ourselves. A connection to the earth. To align ourselves with the rhythm and the magic of the world around us.
Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
Our organization is founded upon a deep commitment to diversifying the outdoors, by increasing education and access among BIPOC and Queer communities. It is the bedrock of our work and integral to every choice we make, and every adventure we plan.
