DC’s Tyrhee Moore competes in new competition-style docu-series

Fourth-generation Washingtonian Tyrhee Moore is a name that brings a gust of fresh air to the world of outdoor education. Moore, a well-known presence and disruptor in the outdoor community, is set to compete in the new competition-style docu-series “Wildly Wyoming,” premiering Thursday, Aug. 3.

The five-episode series, produced in partnership with Ford Bronco Wild Fund, Outside, and Wyoming Office of Tourism, showcases three groups of Team Bronco Ambassadors setting out on adventure-packed paths across Wyoming. On each route, teams will meet up with locals, guides, and organizations that focus on access, preservation, and stewardship. The Team Bronco Ambassadors will learn what is needed to care for the untamed, wild spirit of Wyoming’s land and its people while competing in physical and Ford Bronco-based challenges.

“Wildly Wyoming” provides the perfect platform for Moore, who is participating as one of the Team Bronco Ambassadors, to showcase his skills, experience, and passion. Participants are thrown into the rugged wilderness of Wyoming, where they must rely on their wit, endurance, and knowledge of the outdoors. Moore’s participation in this series is not merely about competition; it’s a testament to his commitment to outdoor education.

Raised within the urban landscapes of the nation’s capital, Moore’s journey to outdoor education was unconventional. He defied the odds, emerging from city living with an unwavering passion for nature and its teachings. As a teenager, he was introduced to the great outdoors, and the experience was transformative. It ignited within him a flame that would later become his life’s mission: to foster an appreciation for the environment among the youth of urban communities.

Moore is no stranger to challenges. He has led expeditionary learning trips, mentored young adventurers, and even reached the summit of Denali, the highest mountain peak in North America. His experiences have honed his skills, making him a formidable competitor for “Wildly Wyoming.”

However, what distinguishes Moore is not just his impressive resume but also his vision. He recognizes the transformative power of nature and wishes to make outdoor experiences accessible to all, regardless of their background. Moore’s work extends beyond the realm of the personal. As the founder of Soul Trak Outdoors, a non-profit organization, he has made it his mission to connect communities of color in the D.C. area with outdoor experiences.

Moore’s participation in “Wildly Wyoming” is not merely a competition but an embodiment of his life’s work and passion. It’s a chance to show the world the power and importance of outdoor education. And as he steps into the wild terrain of Wyoming, one thing is clear: Moore is not just playing a game. He’s living his truth, inspiring others to step outside their comfort zones, and making outdoor learning accessible to all.

“Wildly Wyoming” airs weekly beginning Thursday, Aug. 3, on streaming services and Outside TV, 6 pm EST.
