 A common critique of outdoor recreation programs is that they are not accessible to marginalized communities, including women and people of color. This trip is designed as a wilderness retreat for women and femme-identifying students. The goal of this trip is to create a safe and empowering environment for women to explore outdoor recreation and to have a space to talk openly about women?s issues. The trip will be a mix of hiking, swimming, relaxing, and discussion.

Tunica Falls hosts some of the most scenic and beautiful hikes accessible by day trip from New Orleans. Compared to the rest of the region, Tunica Falls is topographically unique, and is considered to be the closest you can get to canyoneering in the south. Comprising over 2,000 acres, this pristine area has over 40 waterfalls that range from 10 to over 25 ft. high. We'll hike along the riverbed, spend some time cooling off in the falls, and eat lunch on the trail. Trip cost includes food, transportation, and leadership.
