Your Call: Diversifying the face of outdoor adventure and recreation
On the March 23rd edition of Your Call, we’ll discuss efforts to increase diversity in outdoor recreational activities. Only 20 percent of visitors to National Parks are people of color. From hiking to climbing, the faces of outdoor recreation don’t reflect the diversity of the United States, but some groups are working to close the gap.
How do we encourage more people of color to reconnect with the great outdoors? Why is diversity necessary for the conservation movement? It's Your Call with Rose Aguilar and you.
