    What we're about

    Outdoor Afro is a community that reconnects African-Americans with natural spaces and one another through recreational activities such as camping, hiking, biking, birding, fishing, gardening, skiing — and more! We use social media to create interest communities, events, and to help shift the visual representation of who gets outdoors. Here is where you can start locally connecting with people who share your outdoor interests and aspirations!
