You do. Our Grassroots Program connects outdoor women locally so they can support one another in getting outside + actively pursue their adventure goals. Live now with beta testing in our Grassroot Team locations and elsewhere, we’ll be moving across all areas of North America, then opening worldwide.

Since 2014, our Grassroots Teams have connected over 15,000 women in regional communities across North America, helping them find like-minded friends to achieve goals and break down barriers to outdoor adventure.

Expanding on this team model, we’re taking the program worldwide, starting with beta testing in our Grassroot Team locations, moving to all points across Canada + the U.S., then opening to the entire globe.

Using Outdoor Women’s Alliance resources, women who become OWA Grassroots Program members build local communities of women who are getting outdoors, organizing events, hosting skills clinics, and giving back by creating volunteer partnerships with outdoor nonprofits within their region.

Already live near one of our Grassroots areas?

Are you living in one of our current eight regional locations? If so, when you join OWA’s Grassroots Program, you’ll become part of one of our established Grassroots Teams or Regional Areas. These on-the-ground programs — which have been running since 2014 — are the model and catalyst for the creation of our larger Grassroots Program. Through the dedication of volunteers, each Team or Region holds local events, meetups, and adventures for its members (you!). OWA has 15,000+ women who are getting together each week within these areas — check below to see where our current Grassroots locations are!

And remember, even if you’re not in a Grassroots Team or Regional Area, no problem; that’s why the larger Grassroots Program was created! Our Grassroots locations are just one part of the larger Grassroots Program. No matter where you live, we’ll help you with getting connected with other local outdoor women, getting the resources you need, and creating adventure opportunities right where you are.
