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!
Outdoor Afro, Brown Girls Climb and Movement Climbing + Fitness, team up to host a special night of rock climbing and community building, at MC+F RiNo. Everyone is welcome and encouraged to attend! Please register at https://www.facebook.com/events/500932760313602/.
