We inspire and enable learning through outdoor activities is an evolving platform that emphasizes learning through experience from outdoor activities. We are inspired and inspire through stories of everyday people spotlighting the beauty & benefits experienced from outdoor activities. Through our funds, we encourage organizations that are already working relentlessly to help people get active outdoors within their own communities. We also run our own initiatives to encourage more youth to connect with the greater outdoors.
