“As queer and trans people we’re used to taking ownership over the changes we want to see,” say organizers of the Venture Out Project. Throughout the fall, the Venture Out Project they will be hosting Queer Day Hikes dedicated to picking up trash and making our outdoor spaces a little better. As an outdoor organization and as people dedicated to taking care of our natural world, they believe it’s their job to take care of the trails they use.

Join them on their next hike on Sunday, November 24th on the Cascade Falls Loop Trail. The elevation gain is 377 feet and the hike distance is three miles, on ancestral lands of the Piscataway Tribe. They will meet at 9 am to carpool at the 33rd Street Farmers Market. If you are interested in carpooling contact Hallie Herz at hallie.herz@gmail.com. You can also meet up at the trailhead in Elkridge, Maryland at 9:45 am. There is parking on the side of the road.

They always pack out more than they pack in and hope to encourage those around them to do the same, making part of the world around us a little better than they found it. For more info and exact GPS coordinates visit Bit.ly/35jVJxE.
