Our programming is built around the deep belief that a more diverse outdoors is a better outdoors. The cornerstone of our work is our Adventure Guide Development Training, where we invite BIPOC, Queer, and Trans outdoorists to participate in a no-cost training that includes a stipend and several essential certifications for leaders in the outdoors. For BIPOC, Queer, and Trans folks who dream of a career and lifetime spent outside, Wild Diversity is here to break down the barriers that would otherwise make these dreams inaccessible for many.
These Guides then go out into the greater Portland area, with robust and thoughtful programming for our community. They facilitate events in the water, on land, in the woods, in the mountains, for adults and youth. And are integral to making the outdoors a place where all of us are welcomed.
Your generous donation makes our work possible by funding these trainings and providing scholarships for our events. We thank you for your support.
