Presenter Bio:

Inspired by a childhood divided between an urban home and a working ranch, Rue Mapp founded Outdoor Afro, an online community that reconnects African-Americans with natural spaces and one another through outdoor activities. She now advises on a number of national initiatives that aim to connect more diverse participation in the outdoors; she was recently appointed to the National Parks Committee on Relevancy, and invited to the White House twice in 2010 for the launch of the Obama’s America’s Great Outdoors Initiative, and to take part in a think-tank to inform the launch of the Let’s Move campaign. She currently serves as a Program Officer for the Foundation for Youth Investment to oversee its grant making to help programs connect underserved California youth to the outdoors. Rue earned her B.A. from the University of California, Berkeley, and enjoys nature frequently with her three school-aged children.
