What We're About


The Renaissance.  It was a time of rebirth, new ideas, fresh perspectives.  This movement brought a sense of new life to a society (literally) plagued with disease, famine, and civil unrest.  

The team at The Outdoor Renaissance takes this movement to the outdoors, where we not only explore what the world has to offer us – but also to explore the possibilities of what we can offer the world. 

The Outdoor Renaissance Team envisions a healthy planet full of healthy people – where we join together as a community of outdoor enthusiasts to conserve the planet, and enrich our human connections.

Our mission is to inspire action, curiosity, and a sense of wonderment about the planet we all call home. We encourage others to find their own personal connection to nature to create a world more intimately integrated in life, beauty, and spirit.
