Wilderness Inquiry

About Wilderness Inquiry

Wilderness Inquiry’s mission is to connect people from all walks of life to the natural world through shared outdoor adventures. Through the medium of outdoor adventure travel, we inspire personal growth, enhanced awareness of the environment and community integration. Our adventures encourage people to open themselves to new possibilities and opportunities.

In addition to our many great adventures for adults, we facilitate opportunities for urban youth, individuals with disabilities, and other nontraditional users of public lands and waterways via programs such as Canoemobile, Gateway to Adventure, and Outdoor Career Academy. Since 1978, we’ve directly served more than half a million individuals. Our programs facilitate fundamental changes in perceptions and beliefs, breaking down barriers between people.

At Wilderness Inquiry, we believe that everyone belongs. We work to ensure this belief holds true in our workplace, in our community, and in the outdoors.

Wilderness Inquiry prohibits discrimination against any participant, applicant, volunteer, intern, or employee on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, national origin, age, disability, marital or military status, political affiliation, genetic information, or any other protected class under law.
