2018 Get Outdoors PA Webinar - Diversity/Inclusion Initiative and Thoughts in Outdoor Programming

Get Outdoors PA Webinar - Trail Events that Make Everyone Happy






Keisha and Tarsha Scovens, co-founders of Let's Go Outdoors, have spearheaded initiatives to diversify participation in the outdoors, especially among those of color.  Their mission is to connect city communities to outdoor experiences.  Since 2013, Let's Go Outdoors has piloted and offered programs in urban communities, primarily neighborhoods in Philadelphia, which have engaged diverse youth, adults and families in outdoor programs.  Programs, such as "There's Good Outdoors in My Neighborhood," "Nature Intervention," "Outdoors 1, 2, 3!," and "The Watershed is an Open Book," have offered positive connections and successful diversity/inclusion outcomes for Let's Go Outdoors.  Keisha and Tarsha will discuss these initiatives, highlighting challenges, strengths and strategies that may help other organizations seeking to diversify their audience engagement.  In addition, their goal is to hold a brief conversation about diverse audience participation in outdoor programs.
