What we’re about

Women Outdoors is a national, nonprofit organization whose mission is to provide a supportive environment where all women can have fun and challenge themselves in a community of women who love the outdoors while respecting the earth. Women Outdoors promotes leadership, friendship, adventure and enjoyment in the great outdoors. *This group is for WOMEN only!*

An all-volunteer organization, Women Outdoors has regional chapters in states throughout the US, all of which organize activities for members such as hiking, biking, kayaking and cross-country skiing.

If you love the outdoors and want to share it with other women, please check us out.

Membership Dues - There are NO membership dues to join this Meetup. Although it does cost to maintain a Meetup group, the national Women Outdoors organization generously subsidizes our cost and hopes you'll consider joining. There are many benefits to joining Women Outdoors, including being eligible to register for The Gathering. Women Outdoors also offers subsidized or full tuition reimbursement for leadership and outdoor skills training, including first aid and kayak trip leading, for example.
