Welcoming Recreation for All
WILD WOMEN+ WEEK 2022
February 26 - March 8
~ DEFINING OUR OWN WILD ~
Help us take over the outdoors from February 26th to March 8th in celebration of #Internationalwomensday!
Spend the week being a Wild Woman+ hiking, biking, strolling, running, kayaking or whatever gets you pumped and feeling empowered (list of suggested & virtual activities coming soon).
The 4th Annual Wild Women+ Week is a chance for us as women+ to celebrate ourselves and each other, to discover opportunities for growth and community and to make ourselves seen and heard.
This year's celebration will include:
11 days of inclusive and free/affordable activities around our community
An Adventure Film Night
The crowning of our 4th Wild Woman+ of the Year
An Online Silent Auction featuring over 100 items you'll want for another year in the outdoors
An International Women's Day Celebration
What do we mean by 'women+'?
While Wild Women+ Week was inspired by International Women's Day, we at Shifting Gears welcome and support many individuals other than those identifying as female. Our community is made up of a beautiful diversity of genders, and Wild Women+ is proud to be inclusive to the wide spectrum of genders that exist outside of the cisnormative gender binary.
How to get involved
Save the Date on your calendar for February 26-March 8. We are currently working with our community partners to build a diverse calendar of activities for you. Be sure to follow us on social media to stay up to date!

Sponsor us! Wild Women+ Week is an incredible collaboration of individuals and community partners working together to create equity and inclusion in the outdoors. One of the biggest barriers to this effort is a lack of affordable opportunities. Wild Women+ Week aims to make all of our activities free to those who traditionally cannot afford them. Your sponsorship can help us offer activities that are free, safe and inclusive to the 200+ individuals that we serve each year. If you are interested in uplifting the women+ in our community, please follow this link to read more.
