Kaylé Barnes

Founder, The Great Outchea


After hearing a podcast episode about the lack of people of color in the outdoors while hiking in Big Sur, Kaylé Barnes created The Great Outchea project to highlight and celebrate people of color outdoors. She's proud to be part of a coalition expanding the definition of who gets to be outdoorsy and whose stories get shared. She makes a living in the nonprofit sector and makes a life outchea.
