About Us

Launched in 2014, Terrain is a nonprofit publication devoted to growing outdoor recreation in St. Louis and the Great Middle West. We do this by delivering a free print publication, online content, community events, and partnerships with leading outdoor organizations.

Our work over the past 10 years has cultivated an audience of enthusiasts who spend their leisure time running, hiking, biking, camping, paddling, climbing, and actively enjoying nature. We believe everyone should have access to outdoor experiences are are committed to building an outdoor community that is inclusive and diverse.

Terrain is published six times a year and is available for free at close to 200 locations in the St. Louis bi-state area and beyond. Complementing the print magazine, our online presence includes a digital edition that can be read on all computers and mobile devices; expanded editorial coverage on our website; and active social media channels.

In addition, Terrain is proud to produce the annual Gateway Outdoor Expo.

Terrain is a program of River City Foundation, a private nonprofit foundation dedicated to promoting, supporting, and advocating for outdoor recreation.
