Understanding BIPOC exclusion from outdoor spaces
with Mardi Fuller, communications strategist
Friday, February 3: 10:00 am @ Ledge Brewing Company (15 Town Hall Road, Intervale, NH)
Why, and how have People of Color been excluded from full participation in outdoor sports? We'll take a brief but deep dive into understanding white supremacy culture and how it normalizes its own experiences, history, narratives and environmental ideology and keeps those operating out of its framework (and that can people of any race) from seeing beyond it. Mardi will take us on a journey through her life of adventures as a Black outdoors-woman who has grown in her liberation-focused identity. We’ll discuss barriers marginalized people face in accessing the outdoors and how their exclusion is detrimental to all people. We'll end by discussing solutions and how each of us can play a role in increasing equitable access to nature and outdoor activities.

Ice Climb Stronger
With Hilary McCloy, physical therapist and trainer
Saturday, February 4th: 10 am @ Ledge Brewing Company (15 Town Hall Road, Intervale, NH)
This is a workshop designed to teach you how the shoulder, forearm, spine, and legs all play a role in ice climbing. Hilary will break down the mechanics of the joints, key muscles, and how to keep your body strong and protected against the strains and challenges of ice climbing. You will learn a few key exercises and stretches to keep the body primed to climb. Expect the workshop to run about an hour, including Q and A. So, if you have a nagging shoulder, forearm, or back injury, this is a great chance to learn more and feel better.
