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.
