Women in the Wild: Hiking Workshop

SOLD OUT: Join us for upcoming Women in the Wild experiences! SDParks.org/WomenintheWild

Join Nature Collective, as a partner with County of San Diego Parks + Recreation for a Women in the Wild Hiking Workshop! Enjoy a beginner’s hike on the popular Annie’s Canyon Trail in San Elijo Lagoon.

Learn the essentials of hiking, while gaining knowledge about the land, lagoon and local wildlife. Get a bird’s eye view of lagoon restoration and all the water flowing in and out. This event is hosted in partnership with Nature Collective + San Diego County Parks Society. Jennifer Bright, Associate Director for Nature Collective and a backcountry hiker joins us on this journey.

After the hike, join Nature Collective for complimentary tastings at The Lost Abbey in Cardiff-by-the-Sea.

The County of San Diego Parks + Recreation’s Women in the Wild experiences are planned for women, by female staff members and partners. With events ranging from backpacking to bouldering and hiking to camping, we open new avenues for conversation, connection and collaboration. You can gain outdoor skills in a fun, nurturing and non-competitive environment.

Experiences are educational, interactive and fun—building confidence and a sense of community while fostering new appreciation for San Diego’s parks, preserves and diverse recreational opportunities.
