We Activate Community Members and Foster Environmental Education.

 

We're actively working to connect underserved LGBTQ+ young people from disadvantaged backgrounds and communities with each other and provide them outdoor opportunities, as well as teach them the importance of ecological and environment awareness, preservation, and recovery. In addition to raising money for the Trailmixer OUTdoor Access Fund to award scholarships, we feel that creating educational adventures and bringing about a more diverse LGBTQ+ community is equally important. Our goal is that each experience will lead to awareness about nature, the environment and conservation.

Hikes, Backpacking Trips & Climbs

Part of Trailmixer's mission is to create a community of activist-hikers who want to learn about the outdoors and who are passionate about making outdoor spaces more inclusive and accessible to LGBTQ+ folks, people of color, and other underserved communities. From the months of January to September, we host weekly training hikes that progressively get harder to provide training and expertise in the outdoors for the amazing people who embark on our Annual Fundraiser Climbs and take on the important job of raising money for the Trailmixer OUTdoor Access Fund.

Frequency & Available Spots:

Every weekend from January to September.

Participants of the Trailmixer Fundraiser Climbs, hikes, and anyone who loves hiking and the outdoors.
