Alix’s introduction to the outdoors and her role at SCDNR Diana re-introduce for listeners. I think it's important for our listeners to understand the structure of the outdoor industry What partnerships do DNR have on a state-by-state basis with other community engagement programs? ● What are some of the barriers between Law Enforcement and underrepresented audiences? And what have you done to address those? ● Has the issue of Firearm’s Safety been a factor in getting more Black and Brown people into the outdoors?

Ashley’s first woodcock with Rose/ learning or teachable moments from Ashley’s POV? GRN Fat Tuesday Announcement Pheasant Fest Announcement - Public Lands Stage and Path to the Uplands Stage Southern Environmental Law Center- Voices for Clean Water initiative: “What brings me to the water is the landscape of the Flint River in South Georgia and the Red Hills. These areas resonate with me because the river rests within a landscape important to bobwhite quail, which I pursue with my beloved string of bird dogs. I pray that we as a people will do what we must to save and conserve our public waters in order to pass along old and new traditions, love, and reverence of the outdoors to my children and their children after me.” —Durrell Smith As co-founders of the Minority Outdoor Alliance, we want to support the Southern Environmental Law Center and the Voices for Clean Water initiative.
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has proposed to undo the harmful Trump administration rule that removed federal Clean Water Act protections for countless crucial waterways and wetlands, opening the doors to pollution and destruction by industry, mining and development.
Since the Trump administration’s rule went into effect in June 2020, wetlands and waterways throughout the country lost protections and are now slated for industrial development. The impacts of this rule are far-reaching and people across our region are calling for a return to federal protections that reflect the value clean water plays in all our lives.

Let’s call back protections that honor the value of clean water in all of our lives, especially as we bring more and more unlikely and underrepresented groups to our public waters. More hands-on engagement helps uplift all our voices to help secure environmental victories and strengthen protections and policies around our beautiful country!

We thank our partners: Eukanuba Sporting Dog, Pheasants Forever/ Quail Forever, S.Kent Rockwell Foundation, Theodore Roosevelt Conservation partnership, The Sporting Life Notebook
In this episode, Breanna Bashford, Ashley, and Durrell discuss a number of key questions that we think may give our growing audience context and clarity on what it means to Bring the Unlikely to the Active Outdoors, while simultaneously defining what the active, sporting outdoors means for the greater community of Georgia’s residents. Throughout the episode, we hope to give you a glimpse into our future plans and partnership initiatives with the Georgia Wildlife Federation to continue creating conversations that will lead to more diversity, equity, and inclusion in the active outdoors, and encourage more communities of color to participate in the conversation of land and water conservation.
On the next Episode of OUR OUTSIDE, we will continue to dive into the conservation conversations in communities of color. For supporting material from our discussion, take a look through our show notes for links and references. We will release episodes of OUR OUTSIDE bi-weekly, with guests sharing their vast knowledge and experiences advocating for diversity in our active outdoor communities, so please subscribe to our podcast, and visit us at minorityoutdooralliance.org.
