WANTED:

We will be outside doing things year-round, so dress in layers for changing weather. All ages are welcome. No dogs, please. Parking at trailheads is limited, so we’ll meet first & carpool to starting points. Our meeting places are in coffee shops or public places: contact us to get event flyers with details. If the weather is just too awful for a planned outdoor event, we have indoor options planned (same meeting place, either way).


All events are led by local residents who are deaf or have hearing loss, with years of 

​outdoor recreation experience. All communication modes are welcome: Whatever works! 
​Events will have also written scripts for sharing the guides' information with the group.

 Need more information? 

 •  We have a flyer for each event: descriptions, meeting place info, what to bring, & best features.
 •  We can send you a map to meeting locations, or answer questions by email.


 Use the CONTACT page to join our mailing list, or request specific event flyers.


 Or send us an email at ALDAboulder@gmail.com with your questions — and your suggestions.
