News and Events

New Podcast Miniseries Highlights Women Voices of the Appalachian Trail 

This new podcast miniseries will bring a new focus to the thousands of women who have built, hiked on and been inspired by the Appalachian Trail (A.T.). “Where We Walk: Stories of the Appalachian Trail,” is a special six-part series developed by the Appalachian Trail Conservancy (ATC) in collaboration with She Explores Podcast and made possible with a grant from REI. This groundbreaking miniseries explores the women who have helped make the Trail what it is today, as well as those who are shaping its future.

You can experience “Where We Walk” starting on September 21 by subscribing to She Explores Podcast on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Stitcher or wherever you listen to podcasts.

Wild East Women is seeking individuals or organizations who might be interested in hosting an event that inspires women to engage with public lands and trails as adventurers, stewards, and leaders. Previous events have included virtual film screenings, virtual workshops, as well as a variety of trail maintenance work trips. These events are focused on bringing together people who identify as female and their allies in a supportive, non-judgmental environment to learn about the joys of nature and giving back to the outdoors.

Hosting a WEW event would require sharing event details with the WEW group by completing this form. The event would then be promoted via the WEW network as a WEW event (with you/your organization as the host!) and it would welcome all women and their allies to join.
