We All Belong in Nature.

BIPOC Outdoor Gear Library

is a community-based lending library focused on providing access to outdoor equipment for the BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Colour) community of (so-called) Guelph and the surrounding areas. Through collaboration with partners we are working to increase representation of BIPOC peoples engaging in outdoor recreation by reducing barriers to access, creating community, and providing resources and education.

How it works:

Register for a membership.

Select and borrow library gear at no cost!

Have the most fun!

Return gear for someone else to enjoy.

Facilitating Outdoor Joy!

While gear is our focus, don’t forget to check out ourGet Involved” section for outdoor events and our Blog for outdoor education.
