Here are a Handful of BIPOC Outdoor Organizations You Can Support

Creating more representation in the outdoors needs to be a community effort. However, one of the easiest ways to start making a difference for marginalized communities is to amplify, support, and volunteer with organizations that aim to make the outdoors a more diverse and inclusive space. If you're here thinking, "but I'm only one person—what good does that do," it's important to remember that change doesn’t happen from one singular action. It’s the culmination of small actions from thousands of people. If you need help finding a place to start, here are a few BIPOC outdoor organizations we’ve found on Instagram that you can support today.

Supporting these groups can be as simple as donating what you can (even $5 helps), amplifying their message, or helping at events.

Camp Founders Girls' (CFG) #mission is to provide transformative #outdoor experiences to young #black girls.⁠ ⁠ ** THE HISTORY OF CFG **⁠ ⁠ #1924⁠ After encountering racial discrimination from local summer⁠ camp organizations, Mattie Landry launched (founded) her⁠ own #camp for young Black girls: Camp Founder Girls. Its⁠ birth in 1924 made it America's first historically Black⁠ summer camp for girls.⁠ ⁠ #1941⁠ With the popularity and #impact of Camp Founder Girls⁠ steadily increasing, Mattie Landry purchased 7-acre land⁠ plot in Boerne, TX. Camp Elvira, named after Mattie's mother,⁠ would #grow to include 10 cabins and a #recreation center that⁠ seated 150.⁠ ⁠ #1964⁠ After 40+ years of serving the San Antonio #community.⁠ Mattie Landry retires from Camp Founder Girls. In 1968,⁠ Camp Founder Girls officially ceased operations. In the 40+ years of operation, Camp Founder Girls provided life-⁠ changing #summer camp experiences to over 1,500 girls.⁠ ⁠ #2019⁠ Camp Founder Girls officially relaunches under the Black⁠ Outside, Inc umbrella of programming. The new generation⁠ of Camp Founder Girls #honored the traditions of the past⁠ while ushering in a new set of traditions to call their own.⁠ ⁠ ** What's Next for CFG **⁠ ⁠ Philanthropitch @pitch4good is a social impact pitch event that connects #nonprofits with the coaching and capital they need to scale!⁠ ⁠ Support Camp Founder Girls and @blackoutside_inc during Philanthropitch by buying tickets!

​Welcome to Safety Week 2021

Every year here at TGR we are proud to present our annual collection of snow safety resources in the form of Safety Week. This year our focus on safety comes with special importance due to the massive growth of backcountry users and an incredibly unstable snowpack across much of the west. With the challenges we all faced in 2020, we must say it’s pretty amazing to see how many of us have embraced the wonder of the mountains, but that brings a special new set of challenges for everyone, both
