Wild Diversity

BIPOC-Led Organization


Wild Diversity is an innovative nonprofit organization on a mission to foster deep connections between the natural world and individuals within the BIPOC and LGBTQ2S+ communities. Through our enriching outdoor adventures and educational initiatives, we are leading the way to empower these communities to rediscover and embrace the transformative beauty of the great outdoors.

Bottom Line for Portland

Each year, Wild Diversity proudly curates an impressive roster of over 60 day events, overnight adventures, and community workshops, alongside dozens of youth outings, benefiting an astonishing 700 BIPOC and LGBTQ2S+ participants. Beyond the thrill of adventure, we are trailblazers in providing one of the most comprehensive and inclusive Leadership Development courses in our industry, delivering culturally relevant curriculum across all our outdoor disciplines.

Please join us in our unwavering commitment to enriching the lives of our community in profound and meaningful ways by providing scholarships, accessible adventures, and vital education.


"It was gorgeous and joyful. It is one of the most connective Wild Diversity experiences I've been on. Time in the water was wonderful. Also the non-verbal/musical/joyful container we created felt so welcoming and safe." - Participant

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

By prioritizing education and access for BIPOC and LGBTQ2S+ communities, we've established a strong foundation for our mission. This commitment is not just a part of our work, it's at the very core of who we are.
