Creating a community of strong, adventurous women through the empowerment that comes from taking charge of your own education. Our goal is to teach women that they can so that nobody can ever tell them that they can't. We guide educational experiences that promote independence and self-sufficiency, encouraging all women to pursue more adventures outside. Let's go farther, jump higher and get our hands dirty! We maintain a diverse, welcoming environment; every woman who wants to participate shall!
wildHERness aims to recruit new outdoor enthusiasts of any age. All experience levels are welcome! We know it can be intimidating to get started in the outdoors. Our mentors and educators have been there, some more recently than others! Bottom line: we always provide a comfortable, pressure-free learning environment. Once a skill has been developed through our events or workshops, women have opportunities to give back by helping someone else find their passion.
Because we are of the opinion that cost should never be a barrier to participation, our clinics and events are free to low-cost. By volunteering in our own communities, we find ways to support those that support us! Whether it be through conservation of wild places and wild spaces, patronizing woman-owned businesses, supporting our community is vital.
We do it all! Hiking, hunting, backpacking, fishing, kayaking, climbing, shooting, camping, star gazing, cooking, crafting, bird watching. No matter how peripherally related the outdoor pursuit might be, it is never off limits! Our class offerings are as diverse as the people attending them.
Events and workshops are held regularly and cover a variety of topics. We offer a non-competitive, skills-based approach to learning through the provision of progressive activities with the goal of self-sufficiency and outdoor competence. If you have a desire to learn something new, we can help make it happen!
Have you ever wanted to try a particular outdoor activity but weren't sure where to get started? That's where we come in! Join us to explore your wild.
