In honor of LGBT history month, local non-profits OUT There Adventures and EarthCorp are teaming up to drawn attention to the LGBTQ community and its relationship to our region’s parks and wild places.
OUT There Adventures (OTA) is a Seattle-area non-profit whose mission is to help young people who identify as LGBTQ build community, cultivate leadership skills and their connection to nature through adventure. EarthCorp’s mission is to build a global community of leaders through environmental service. Together they are teaming up through their “Get OUT There” service project on October 15th in hopes of highlighting the importance of connecting with nature but how it can be difficult for various members of the LGBTQ community to do so.
