Trail Mixed Collective is a small but mighty community of women of color hungry for more access and opportunities for outdoor recreation. The mission of Trail Mixed Collective is to uplift women of color in the outdoors through access to educational opportunities and scholarships, community events, storytelling, and access to informal mentorship from fellow women of color. They recognize that the outdoors can be an intimidating space to enter as a woman of color which is why they are committed to increasing opportunities for safe learning environments as a means to increase overall representation. Their team is eager to continue offering accessible events as they work toward shifting the narrative of who belongs outside. Trail Mixed welcomes all cis, trans-women and non-binary people of color interested in entering or advancing in outdoor pursuits.
