Hike Bankhead Trail with Black Kids Adventures Inc.
September 10 @ 9:00 AM - 12:00 PMFree
Join Black Kids Adventures Inc. (BKA) and Dudley Edmondson for a guided hike at the Bankhead Trailhead at the Monte Sano Nature Preserve. Dudley Edmondson will be joining for a talk and hike. His presence will amplify BKA’s mission to educate and empower the community and help engage the next generation of outdoor leaders.
“Mr. Edmondson has been immersed in the effort to help the conservation sector become more inclusive. He is one of the first to highlight the involvement of African Americans in the public lands system. Unsatisfied with the numbers of people who looked like him among those he encountered in his outdoor pursuits, Mr. Edmondson set out to create a set of out- door role models for the nation’s African American community by writing his landmark book, Black & Brown Faces in America’s Wild Places (AdventureKeen Publications 2006) In 2010 Dudley’s book and conservation work landed him an invitation to the White House for the signing of America’s Great Outdoors Initiative.”
The event is free and open to all, but registration is required. For the latest updates, more information, and to register, be sure to check out the Black Kids Adventures Inc. website and follow them on social media.
