Description

Join Latino Outdoors & Fat Girls Hiking for this free journaling workshop, nature walk and information discussion.


Latino Outdoors is a unique Latino-led organization. We are working to create a national community of leaders in conservation and outdoor education. As part of this work, we are focused on expanding and amplifying the Latino experience in the outdoors; providing greater opportunities for leadership, mentorship, professional opportunities and serving as a platform for sharing cultural connections and narratives that are often overlooked by the traditional outdoor movement. It is a space for the community to be present, share their voices, and showcase how conservation roots have been ingrained in Latino cultura for generations.

Fat Girls Hiking is a diverse body positive hiking community based in Portland, OR. We want to take the shame & stigma out of the word FAT & empower it. Our motto, Trails Not Scales focuses on Self Care in the outdoors. We promote weight-neutrality & Health At Every Size. Trails Not Scales reminds us that the more we hike, the more love we have for ourselves & our bodies just as they are. We want all people to feel comfortable outdoors & to be able to claim their space on the trail. We believe that folks of all ages, sizes, shapes, races, religions, classes, abilities, genders and sexual identities should be represented & celebrated in the outdoors. Our community is for everyone! We encourage & support folks who want to get out & hike, to do so!


Nature Walk: We will take a short, slow walk on one of the trails nearby.

Getting There: Stevens Pavillion Picnic Shelter is located in Washington Park across the street from the Hoyt Arboretum visitor center at

What to Bring/Wear: There are picnic tables for us to sit on in the picnic shelter but if you prefer a different seating option, bring a camp chair. We will be outside so dress for the weather! Wear whatever is comfortable to sit & move in. Bring a backpack with water, a lunch/snack, a notebook and writing utensils. There are flush toilets at the visitor's center & some snacks for sale.
