What we're about

Women who want to be in the outdoors together, let's get together to hike, bike,
anything outdoors.

Our Mission: 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.

We seek to promote leadership development through member participation in biannual workshops; environmental stewardship by creating and participating in earth stewardship programs; and personal growth by offering multiple skills-based regional workshops.
