Nature Is Female

Nature Is Female

One thing you might not know about us is that we’re a women-owned company. That’s right, Gitchi was founded by two gals! Gals who enjoy spending time outside: hiking, biking, kayaking, snowboarding, canoeing, camping, and more.

To honor both Mother Nature and women’s equal place in the outdoors, we’ve released a new line of goods, our Nature Is Female line.

Our First-Ever Public Lands Pledge Donations

Our First-Ever Public Lands Pledge Donations

At the beginning of 2017, we launched our Public Lands Pledge initiative. So every time you've bought one of our products, we made a promise to donate a portion of each purchase to organizations that support our national parks, state parks, or other beautiful outdoor spaces. As we've said time and time again, we value transparency and accountability, so we want you to know that we've followed through on our promise.

There are so many ways we love to experience nature, and one of our favorites is by paddling. Kayaking and canoeing, even paddle boarding on occasion. We love seeing the wild by water and Wisconsin's wilderness is no exception. The Land of 15,000 Lakes (and 12,600 rivers and streams) is chock full of paddling opportunities, and our beautiful state parks make for a great place to start.

After paddling many a Wisconsin state park, we're happy to offer up these six recommendations for both river and lake excursions.

Exploring Glacier National Park

Exploring Glacier National Park

One of my absolute favorite things to do in the world is to hop into my trusty little SUV and drive west to explore this country’s rugged landscapes and the many gorgeous western National Parks this country has to offer. This past fall I was able to revisit the national park that completely stole my heart: Glacier National Park.

Our Public Lands Pledge

Our Public Lands Pledge

As American citizens, we have a unique and wonderful right, the right to enjoy beautiful public lands that are set aside for all of us. It’s a right rooted in the democratic idea that the country is for the people. This notion that land should be made available to every citizen, not just the wealthiest and most privileged among us, has long been a cherished part of our American fabric.
