Designed by Asheville-based artist and Outdoor Afro volunteer leader, Leandra Taylor, the Kili Mapp Kili DoubleNest Print Hammock was inspired by Outdoor Afro’s Mt. Kilimanjaro Expedition in 2018. This year marks Leandra Taylor’s fifth year as an Outdoor Afro volunteer leader. She recaps her time with the organization and the trip that inspired this hammock design. I attended my first training in 2017 and it was just one of those life-changing experiences, walking into a room of 80 people that are all passionate about the outdoors was something I’ll never forget. I knew that’s where I should be. Through joining Outdoor Afro, I have found support in both my outdoor adventures and in affirming my identity as an artist. Outdoor Afro leaders have been the biggest contributors and encouragers to my creative process. They push me to put my art out there and to share it with the world. Art has always been my creative outlet and nature has always been my favorite muse. When I was younger, I loved to draw flowers and pollinators because of their vibrant colors and patterns. While I’ve always been creative, I haven’t always identified as an “artist,” but as someone who enjoyed drawing...

PCT-AI have to be honest, there are days when it feels like we take two steps forward and one step back. Summer wildfires have been persistently hard on the trail over the past several years. Heavy spring rains in Southern California did wonders for the wildflowers but caused damage to both the trail and popular access points. The recent federal government shutdown delayed important planning and land protection efforts along the PCT. But while these challenges weigh on me at times, it’s pretty easy to shake the blues. Taking a hike on the PCT is an easy cure. So much of the work we are doing together is cause for celebration, allowing me to put the challenges into perspective and find the determination to work through them until we’re successful. I’m elated to share a recent national success that many of you helped bring about. While we were in Washington, D.C., for our annual “Hike the Hill” advocacy trip in February, the U.S. Senate passed a huge public lands bill that included permanent reauthorization of the Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF). It was great to be in our nation’s capital to celebrate this historic, bipartisan vote (92-8). The House of...
LWCF ProtectionIn a bipartisan approach to land protection, the House Natural Resource Committee on Thursday advanced a bill that would permanently reauthorize the federal Land and Water Conservation Fund. This is great news for the Pacific Crest Trail. With the committee vote, the legislation to renew the country’s most important land conservation program has a real chance of passage. Work continues on the bill, and it will still take a big effort to get it through both houses of Congress before the program expires on Sept. 30. Hikers on the Trinity Divide, an ongoing PCTA project to protect 17 miles of the PCT using the LWCF. The Land and Water Conservation Fund is a federal land protection program crucial to the long-term protection of the PCT and the experience it provides, as well as to the other scenic, historic and recreation trails in the National Trails System. Over the last 17 years, almost $36 million from the LWCF has been used to acquire and permanently protect about 23,000 acres along the PCT. Much of that work has been done since 2015, when the Pacific Crest Trail Association expanded its Land Protection Program. “Ten percent of the Pacific Crest Trail still lacks...
