This signature program is tailored to high schoolers who identify as LGBTQ+. In this 6-week course, participants will connect with queer-identified peers and their own inherent resilience as they explore how it emerges in both nature and queerness. Sessions will feature outdoor activities and games, space for reflection and relief, and time to have fun and socialize with one another.
Queer Wilderness Project is a great way for young, queer-identified individuals to build community, make friends, and feel safe and seen.

Queer Wilderness Project was born from the desire to bring queer community together in nature as a space for folx to build relationships to land and people and foster a sense of self that is free from the dominant narratives on suppressing authentic self expression. QWP creates this offering through place-based ecological learning and the reclaiming the joys of play in nature in the local landscape.
Queer Wilderness Project is open to teenagers who identify as LGBTQ+. This includes cis-gender, transgender, and non-binary individuals. Events and outings are offered at a low cost to reduce financial barriers. Gear and equipment provided if necessary.
