River guide – wilderness science program for high school girls

We believe young women deserve opportunities to be curious about the world around them. Research shows that many girls are interested in science and the outdoors at an early age, but drift away as they grow older. By encouraging girls’ natural curiosities, inspiring them to connect their interests in science and art, and cultivating trust in their own physical capabilities, we motivate more women to pursue their passions in science and outdoor activities. We believe in making science and outdoor spaces open and inclusive and this takes much more than our expeditions; this takes changing the culture of science and outdoor exploration from the inside.

Inspiring Girls Expeditions seeks to…
  1. Increase the participation and diversity of women in field sciences, art, and outdoor recreation. We encourage attitudes which foster supportive and inclusive science and outdoor communities.

  2. Foster young women’s self-confidence in their physical, intellectual, and leadership abilities while creating lifelong advocates for Earth science and wilderness stewardship.

  3. Support a network for current early-career scientists, artists, and guides through continuing development opportunities and collaboration.
