FORGE Outdoors offers free, inclusive outdoor activities for transgender/non-binary individuals and their friends, family and loved ones in in the Milwaukee area. Join us this week for a beautiful winter hike on the trails at Schlitz Audubon Nature Center! The nature center is only a few miles from downtown Milwaukee and has scenic views of Lake Michigan, an abundance of wildlife, and wheelchair accessible hiking trails. This will be our last FORGE Outdoors event of the winter season, so we hope we’ll see you there! Don’t miss out on this opportunity to enjoy the nature around us and get moving during the winter months.

Caleb will arrive 15 mins early to meet with anyone who arrives before 12:00. Please plan to meet with us at 12:00 so that we can begin our hike as a group, but feel free to leave earlier than 3:00 if you need to. If you arrive and have a hard time finding the meeting location, please text or call Caleb at 414-249-6746. (Call to check about restrooms)
