We are WOWFWL (“wow-full”).

wowfwl_logoOn September 9th, 2017, four young women from Minnesota embarked upon a 3-month coast-to-coast bicycle ride across the United States to educate and raise awareness on the importance of American public lands and the threats they face. Katie, Hannah, Alex and Ariana call themselves “Women On Wheels For Wild Lands”, or WOWFWL (“wow-full”). Outraged by the current political and environmental threats facing public lands, WOWFWL visited as many public lands along their route as possible, talking to individuals, organizations, legislators, and communities about their experiences, work, and personal stories involving public lands. WOWFWL then shared these conversations as well as the many ways that people can help protect public lands in their blog posts and on all their social media platforms. Their ride began from San Francisco, CA on September 9th, and finished in Columbia, SC on December 10th.
