10 Outdoorsy Facebook Groups to Join if you Live in the Pacific Northwest

I love the community that you can find in the Pacific Northwest. It seems everyone loves to be outdoors! For good reason, the PNW is beautiful and provides the perfect backdrop no matter the activity. Today I am sharing with you 10 outdoorsy Facebook groups to join if you live in the PNW and are looking to find a community of like-minded people. Most specifically, the groups in this list are geared towards females (since that is the majority of my audience and the kind of groups I join). However, there are groups listed for everyone!

I hope you can find some new outdoorsy Facebook groups to join and meet others in the PNW, ask questions, or pick up tips. Anyways, without further ado, let’s get into it!

This group’s description says ” I’ve started this page only to give people just like me an outlet to share their adventures they take with their pups, mutts, purebreds, halfbreeds, and all that lies between. Kayaking with dogs is the main topic on this page, but hiking, biking, and camping with your furry friends will never be rejected!”
