Wilderness Inquiry’s mission is to connect people of all ages, backgrounds and abilities to each other and the natural world through shared outdoor adventures. Wilderness Inquiry has core values of “paddling together, finding a way and seeking the exceptional” to ensure the outdoors is “a place where everyone belongs.”
The overarching goal is to promote equity in access to outdoor activities, spaces and careers through inclusive programs that offer recreational opportunities for thousands annually. A special focus is placed on serving individuals and communities who face barriers.
Wilderness Inquiry in 2022 plans to connect 22,000 people to inclusive outdoor experiences that will increase community integration, improve health and wellness and inspire deep connections to the outdoors.
