Access For Awe is a couple of things:
First, it’s a nod to the desire to have Access for All to outdoor experiences – and an acknowledgement of the many barriers that exist to outdoors access. From expense to transportation, from knowledge to skills, from historical exclusion to current experiences of exclusion – it’s all relevant and important for the BCM community to consider.
Second, it’s an understanding that time in nature is important to physical and mental health. Awe and the idea of being connected with something bigger than yourself seem to be a big part of that, according to recent studies. We believe that time in nature should be a human right – and acknowledge that not one everyone has access to wild spaces.
Come join us for a night of celebrating the opportunity to improve outdoor access for all!
