Thanks again to all the presenters and facilitators who made the 2019 and 2018 events so incredibly memorable. 



Collective Learning Experience and Professional Development

It has been said that one of the things that often holds people back from success is not networking enough. It’s not simply what you know, it’s who you know, and the depth of your relationships. Let's do something about it.

As we all know, business and careers are built on relationships, and connections form when people meet and interact with each other over time, in an authentic and caring way.  Despite all we can learn and who we connect with online — nothing can replace the power of actual time together.   

The concept behind the Outdoor Collective is to create time and space each spring to deliberately seek the company of people who will help us all enhance our practices as educators, facilitators, wilderness, and international travel guides. Anyone engaged in educating, facilitating experiences, guiding, nature interpretation, and travel is welcome.

For 2020, the Outdoor Collective will be a full-day series of peer led professional development workshops/discussion sessions. 

We sincerly hope you see the same value we do in creating this not-for-profit event for the community. 



What to Expect

Peer Led Professional Development Workshops

Peer-facilitated workshops aim to create unique learning opportunities to share information that will enrich participant’s practice in the field. Workshop topics and presenters will be revealed in March.

Networking Opportunities

While online groups certainly serve a purpose, building high-quality face to face connections are key to an enriching life and flourishing career. There will be many opportunities for networking with old and new friends.

Lunch and Refreshments Provided

We are hoping to create a space where you can engage in important conversations and networking opportunities throughout the day. We have provided a catered lunch as part of the event fee.

Peer Led Workshops

We are all fortunate to be part of an industry that values and works to nurture community. Our community is filled with unique, passionate, highly knowledgeable individuals who have much to share. The concept is for facilitators to share experiential knowledge about topics that aim to deepen our practices and add new items to all of our toolboxs when it comes to working in the field. We are currently seeking interested presenters and facilitators for the 2020 Outdoor Collective event. Please see the call for presenters for more information.





The best journeys answer questions that in the beginning you never thought to ask.
