Research & Results

wI growth chartThroughout its history, Wilderness Inquiry has conducted and encouraged research on its trips and programs in order to document outcomes and to seek ways to continually improve the quality of its service. These efforts have taken many forms, from very personal inquiries into the effects of individual participation to Congressionally mandated studies on how the federal government can improve access to outdoor recreation.

More than 50 studies have been conducted documenting the effects of WI’s integrated adventure experiences. Researchers often use Wilderness Inquiry programs as a field site for conducting research. This page is designed as a resource for interested persons to connect with research by and about Wilderness Inquiry. We hope you find it useful!
