Wild Diversity

BIPOC-Led Organization


Wild Diversity is a nonprofit organization that helps create a personal connection to the outdoors for Black, Indigenous, and all People of Color (BIPOC) & the LGBTQ2S+ communities through outdoor adventures and education.

Bottom Line for Portland

We are guided by our dreams to belong, to heal, to share joy, and to create while expanding our mission to support diversity in the outdoors. More than adventures, we facilitate one of the most robust and accessible Leadership Development courses in our industry and provide culturally relevant curriculum for all of our outdoor disciplines. Success in this year's fundraising campaign will ensure that we can continue offering scholarships, accessible adventures, and education to best serve our community.


“I am reminded how strong my body is and how much being part of a beautiful community is everything. The people and the views are worth every single bug bite and sore muscle in my body.” - Wild Diversity Participant

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

Our organization is founded upon a deep commitment to diversifying the outdoors by increasing education and access among BIPOC and LGBTQ2S+ communities. It is the foundation of our mission and integral to the work we do, the adventures we plan, and how we connect with our community. Our leadership and staff reflect the communities we serve.
