About the WKNDRS

Everything is a canvas – they look to question and push the boundaries of where art can be created and see. The WKNDRS aim to connect with the community through artistic endeavors and make art and design accessible to all.

About The L.A. Foundation

The L.A. Foundation’s mission is to make the world a better, more inclusive place, one adventure and adventurer at a time. Creating a more inclusive outdoor industry requires diverse leadership and inviting, safe and fun communities full of adventure and experience. The L.A. Foundation is creating both.

Each local chapter provides fun free monthly events providing the opportunity to meet with other local adventurers in your area.

Thanks to their sponsors, the L.A. Foundation provides scholarships that are helping change the face of leadership in the outdoors. From AST1 courses to full hiking guide certifications, they’re growing their scholarship opportunities to help BIPOC, LGBTQ2S+, non-binary, gender diverse and female leaders excel in the backcountry. Because everyone should have the opportunity to experience education in the outdoors.
