The We Outchea Survey
We all know the cliches about black and brown people participating in the outdoors. However, apart from a few surveys looking at the black travel experience, no research exists that helps us understand the reality of underrepresented groups in outdoor activities in the U.S. For the purposes of this survey, underrepresented groups includes BIPOCs, women, LBGT, plus size, people with disabilities, etc.

Outerthere.com is committed to including everyone outdoors, helping everyone access every activity and feel welcome every time, and we're hoping to get some answers with this short, 3-minute survey. We sincerely appreciate your thoughtful responses to our survey.

This survey will be ongoing and you will be able to request your answers at the end, change your answers after you've submitted and submit a response for each activity you want to tell us about. We will track and report on responses seasonally, Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall.
