Welcome to Black Girls Trekkin’!
“A nature-lover and a marine biologist decided to come together to get outside and get in touch with nature, all while helping to inspire and encourage black women to get outside; to appreciate nature and see why we need to protect it, all the while showing that us people of color ARE outside.”
This Los Angeles based group’s mission is mainly to help black women empower black women while getting outdoors. We hope to build up our community and show the world that us ladies of color are a strong and present force in the outdoors. We hope to encourage and inspire other women of color to #optoutside. Join us as we hike, climb, run and embrace the challenges that the outdoors has to offer us. The dictionary defines a “trek” as a journey or trip, especially one involving difficulty or hardship. Black women know too well about hardship in society, we find solace trekkin’ it in nature. Let’s show the world how we overcome and conquer, together.
