How was the AAOA started? Hear from co-founder Greg Wolley
“We’re promoting physical activity to get people out to natural areas. Thats the great thing about living in the Northwest, in many cases the natural areas are only 15-20 minutes away from your neighborhood. The public lands in the Northwest belong to all of us." - Greg Wolley, African American Outdoors Association
