Black Girls Trekkin’ is a new group encouraging women of color to get outside and explore nature.

Nov 02 2021

Black Girls Trekkin’ is a new group encouraging women of color to get outside and explore nature. Up until the Civil Rights Act of 1964, BIPOC were either segregated while entering U.S. national parks or sometimes banned from entering altogether, which created “a gap in how different groups of Americans engaged with nature that still has echoes in the present day.” So, when Nicole Snell and Jasmine Lowe founded Black Girls Trekkin’, they wanted to shift that narrative and “promote diversity and inclusion in the outdoors,” and make sure that women of color were getting out in nature and feeling comfortable while doing so. While leading hiking groups and exploring nature is a big part of their mission, they also encourage physical and mental health, finding a community, and healing of trauma. YPulse’s travel research found that 61% of 13-39-year-old Black consumers consider themselves “outdoorsy,” while 82% agree that spending time outside is rejuvenating. (Uproxx)
