What we're about

Wilderness Network of Georgia (WNG) is a non-competitive volunteer driven gay men’s outdoor recreational group. Membership is open to gay and bisexual men age 18 and older. All skill levels are welcome. We offer day and overnight trips throughout the southeast and occasional national and international offerings. Local trips in metro Atlanta are routinely offered. Sample trips include urban day hikes, rock climbing, hiking, biking, canoeing, parachuting, hot air balloon rides, caving and museum visits. Choose from trips posted on our calendar or volunteer to lead a trip of your choosing. Annual membership dues are $20. WNG is a great way to meet new guys, enjoy the outdoors and make lasting friendships. Join us!

In order to join this group you must pay our annual membership dues of $20.

Joining our group is a two step process. One step is to send us a request to join the group by clicking on the ‘Join Us’ button right there under this description. The second step is to pay the required $20 annual dues via PayPal. Please CLICK HERE (http://www.meetup.com/wildnetga/pages/Pay_Membership_Dues_Here/) to pay your dues.

Unfortunately MeetUp.com does not manage the payment process and therefore MeetUp.com will not automatically approve your request to join once you've made the PayPal payment. The leadership team here at WNG has to handle this process manually and will usually approve your membership request the same day of receiving your payment at which time you will be able to begin using the benefits of being a WNG member. This process is managed by volunteers, so while we try to process most applications within 24 hours, sometimes it may take up to several days.

We do not offer trial memberships, however we do have a 90 day refund offer ONLY for first-time members who have attended no more than 1 trip.

When joining WNG it is preferable for you to include both your first and last names with your profile, but we acknowledge the fact that some members wish to keep their privacy. For that reason we are requiring you to include, at a minimum, your real first name and the first initial of your last name in your profile name.
