What we’re about

Outdoor Afro celebrates and inspires Black connections and leadership in nature. Our local network activities range from hiking, biking, kayaking, swimming, bird watching, fishing, and more.

》We encourage you to share free continuing education resources and tools connected to outdoor education, recreation, and conservation from vetted organizations and groups.

Outdoor Afro welcomes all who support our mission of celebrating and inspiring Black connections and leadership in nature. However, please know that we center Black history, connections, and wellness during our local network events.

In an effort to improve event planning and to promote community among members most events will have a limited number of spaces. Therefore, please only RSVP to events you are committed to attending. We understand that life will happen to all of us, so if you will not be able to attend an event, please change your RSVP as soon as possible so another member can have the opportunity to attend.

We continue to monitor Covid-19 in our community, along with the Tennessee regulations and CDC guidance. We support everyone’s choice about vaccines, and will continue to lead events in a way that we believe is the lowest-risk possible. When you choose to attend an event, you’re agreeing to follow our volunteer Leaders’ guidelines, which may or may not include wearing masks. As information changes, our protocols will evolve, too, so please read the event descriptions carefully. Thanks for your continued support and keeping everyone safe.

See you in the outdoors,
Ashley + Danielle + Danae
