FLATLANDERS CLUB

Looking for your outdoor community?

The Flatlanders Club is a social club devoted to all things adventure. We love hiking, biking, camping, paddling, picnicking, star gazing, and all things outside. The club is open to all individuals who want to get outside and play with other like minded outdoor adventurers.

 

We may be located in the flatlands, but that doesn't stop us from enjoying all of the outdoor recreation and hidden gems the Midwest has to offer! As a Flatlander, you'll join other club members on events planned exclusively for the Flatlanders Club. We will go on adventures near and far, as well as get together for social events and meetups.

Lifetime Membership: $50.00
