Our primary goal for this initiative is to acquaint Howard students and others with the possibilities of local outdoor sanctuaries through Rock Creek Park. We aim to bring together the BIPOC community for a day of empowerment, connection, and a sense of relaxation before the final stretch of demanding coursework. We hope to provide activities, resources related to outdoor engagement, wellness, and community support. Furthermore, highlighting the range of outdoor activities be it cycling, hiking, or simply relishing the outdoors while lounging on a picnic blanket.
