BIPOC Connect

Four people of color and different genders standing together for a portrait in winter season

Connect is a Washington County Parks series of free get-togethers in the parks for Black, Indigenous, and people of color (BIPOC) and allies. These get-togethers offer a chance to connect to the outdoors, try new recreational activities, and meet new friends. This is a friendly and inclusive event to all BIPOC and allies.
