2023-2027 Strategic Plan
In 2022, Wilderness Inquiry embarked on an intentional path forward for the organization with the development of a new, five-year strategic plan. Guided by our commitment to equitable inclusion in the outdoors, the plan sets the course for building stronger organizational efficiency, excellence, and long-term sustainability, while expanding our reach and impact. Through collaborative planning, we’ve created the momentum needed to shape our future and the future of outdoor learning, recreation, and engagement.
Adopting the Plan
This strategic plan was developed by identifying strategic priorities, goals, outcomes, and strategic actions. The priorities will guide Wilderness Inquiry’s overarching strategy and growth over the next five years and will provide a pathway for the future. Strategic actions are more specific, and help articulate how the organization can realize these priorities. As such, the strategic actions are likely to shift over time as the work progresses. Wilderness Inquiry staff has developed metrics to measure progress on each strategic action and identify when shifts need to be made.
Through this work, we remain grounded by our mission and core values that guide our day-to-day work of connecting people of all ages, backgrounds, identities, and abilities to the natural world. The future of Wilderness Inquiry lies before us, set on a strong foundation and ready for us to shape it for future generations.
The Wilderness Inquiry trips I have participated in have always provided me, through your inclusive mission, a renewed optimism, a greater vision for myself, my life, and a confirmation of the inherent kindness of others."
