School Of The Forest Podcast Episode Twenty-Two Is Live; A Conversation With Willa Moore On Community, Representation And Respect In The Outdoor Industry (Pt. 2)

Welcome back.

This is the second half of my chat with Willa Moore. In the first half, we discussed how she got involved in a life lived outdoors and developed a passion for basket making and hide tanning.
In this second episode, we have a really compelling conversation about some of the negative sides of the American outdoor industry, ranging from representation and accessibility, to a need for a more welcoming and caring community during long term wilderness experiences, instead of the current “rugged individual” stereotype that’s become pervasive in many outdoor pursuits. I learned a lot, chatting with Willa, and really enjoyed hearing her perspective on how we in the outdoor industry can create a more welcoming environment for people who’re interested in getting started or taking part in this lifestyle. I hope you all get as much out of it as I did.

Thanks for listening.
