Connecting People Through Shared Outdoor Adventures
For over 40 years, Wilderness Inquiry has been connecting people of all ages, backgrounds, and abilities to the outdoors through shared adventures. It is our goal to ensure that everyone feels like they have a place they belong in the outdoors.
Wilderness Inquiry is all about access, inclusion, and opportunity. We believe exploration of the natural world is a birthright we all share, and act on that belief. Wilderness Inquiry operates in a manner that facilitates full participation by everyone, including people who come from different physical, cultural, or socio-economic places.
Financial Aid is available for Canoemobile participants based on demonstrated need. Please see Financial Aid for Organizations for more information.
