Beautiful People: Evelynn Escobar, Founder of Hike Clerb (+ Mother-to-Be)

07 May 2021

Motherhood. It’s the ability to hold and sustain life, to nourish and protect it, to offer a portal from another world to this one. It’s a term that encircles its arms around all kinds of mothers: those who give birth; those who ask someone else to carry for them; single mothers; adoptive mothers; foster mothers; those who come together to raise a new generation; those who have experienced deep loss; those sheltering even the tiniest inkling of new life.

This Mother’s Day, we’re sharing the story of a mother-to-be, Evelynn Escobar, who is the founder of Hike Clerb , an intersectional women’s hike club bringing community to the outdoors. She’s also a woman bringing new life into this world, and through that and her work, she reminds us of our connection to our collective mother: Earth.
