About Wilderness Inquiry

Whether you're an expert or beginner in outdoor recreation & education (or not particularly outdoorsy at all!) there is a place for you at Wilderness Inquiry.

Like our participants, our staff come from all backgrounds, skillsets, and interests, with one thing in common: we are all passionate about making the outdoors a more diverse, equitable, inclusive, and accessible community for all. With our various program models, staff can enjoy working on extended trips across the country, or spend their days working locally and returning to their own homes every night. With our headquarters and free staff housing located in the Twin Cities, MN, working for Wilderness Inquiry can be rewarding to the avid backcountry adventurer, the weekend "glamper," the metro-based leader, or someone interested in all-of-the-above.

Please check out our website www.wildernessinquiry.org for more information about who we are, what we do, and where you can play your part in making the outdoor accessible for all!

Wilderness Inquiry’s mission is to connect people of all ages, backgrounds, and abilities to each other and the natural world through shared outdoor adventures. Since 1978, Wilderness Inquiry has sought to serve people from all walks of life.

We believe the outdoors should be available to all, including those who face structural or systemic barriers to the use of public lands and waters. As an organization established within the dominant culture, Wilderness Inquiry acknowledges our responsibility to do our part in breaking down these barriers. We remain committed to increasing diversity within our organization and in our outdoor adventure and educational programs. Wilderness Inquiry believes diversity is expressed in a variety of ways, including physical, emotional, cognitive, intellectual and developmental ability; race and ethnicity; national origin; culture; socioeconomic status; gender; sexual orientation; age; and religion.
