Frequently Asked Questions
Events / Activities
What kinds of activities do you organize?
All sorts of stuff. As an all-volunteer organization, Women Outdoors relies on our members to organize and lead all of our events. That means our volunteer leaders can choose to lead the types of outdoor activities they love the most, whether it’s hiking or biking, kayaking or canoeing, caving or climbing – you name it. We also participate in local watershed clean-up days and help with maintenance on some of our favorite hiking trails. We just ask everyone to bring their sense of humor, fun and adventure.
Do I need to have outdoor experience to join Women Outdoors? No. We offer a wide range of activities suitable for different levels of experience, ability and fitness. Some of our activities are geared toward training the beginner outdoors woman in skills such as kayaking, cross country skiing or orienteering. Other activities such as hikes and bike rides run the gamut from easy to strenuous, with most in the moderate range. The regional chapter calendars give general information on each event, but you can also contact the trip leader if you have any questions about the skills or stamina needed for that activity.

I'm not getting emails or the Zoom information for the WOOF events!
Members will be sent announcements for all WOOF events. After you register, you will be sent a confirmation email with Zoom Meeting details. Be sure to add NoReply@womenoutdoors.org and WildApricot.org to your contacts or whitelist to ensure that automated announcement, registration, and confirmation emails don't get blocked.
Don't wait until the last minute to troubleshoot the event. Let us know at least a few hours ahead of time if you need help registering or getting a confirmation with Zoom call-in directions. Otherwise, we'll be busy running the event and won't necessarily be able to help you right away.
