9-hours of facilitated and sustained dialogue with a consistent community of peers, while on 2-4 mile group hikes in various regional parks. Pack a lunch! We ask that participants please plan to join us for all 4 hikes in a given program's series to help us build trust and community with each other.

​Based on the common text, Black Faces, White Spaces by Carolyn Finney.

Session 2 - Representation, Intersectionality and Personal Agency

In small groups, dialogue participants will discuss times when they personally experienced, perpetuated or disrupted instances of racial oppression. We will also dialogue as a whole group about our individual roles as gatekeepers to greater representation in the outdoors while referencing Chapters 3-4. Each participant will complete a social identity profile to inform dialogue about the intersectional awareness and work required to dismantle dominant ideas of a “white wilderness.”


Adopting the motto "Research, Education, and Adventure" in 1947, for three generations the ECP has provided the opportunity to learn new skills and meet new friends who share a willingness to accept the physical and mental challenges of outdoor exploration and adventure.
