Drew, I am an active person who loves the outdoors. I have always noticed that my preferred activities of hiking and trail running are super "White." I also realized working in Central + South Los Angeles that nearly all inner city children had little to no contact with nature, whether it be the ocean within a few miles of their homes or the mountains or back country just a few miles farther away. I always felt it was SO important for everyone to be able to be in nature. I hope you can continue to raise awareness until this CHANGES. Everyone should be able to experience nature.
