Here at GL, we love the great outdoors. The lakes we grew up on hold a special place in our hearts and we want to help preserve that for future generations to enjoy. So, we created The Freshwater Initiative: an ongoing and collaborative campaign to partner with various organizations tackling different issues that ultimately help preserve our beautiful lakes. Supporting our mission is easy:

Every year we’ll select a new organization to partner with. We’ll create limited edition products and launch them seasonally on our website. For every product sold, we’ll donate at least 20% of sales. You get sweet gear while supporting different causes that hit close to home for all of us here in the North.

MISSION

Getting People Outside

Wilderness Inquiry believes exploration of the natural world is a birthright everyone shares. They invite people from all walks of life to experience the outdoors in a manner that provides new perspectives on the environment and the power of positive community spirit.

Inclusive Outdoor Experience

Through programs such as Canoemobile, Gateway to Adventure, and Outdoor Career Academy, Wilderness Inquiry facilitates opportunities to introduce people of all ages, backgrounds, and abilities to the outdoors in positive, life-changing ways.

Breaking Down Barriers

During a Wilderness Inquiry outdoor experience, participants begin to realize that perceived differences, such as ability level, ethnicity, or economic status, are less significant than their common humanity.

PROGRAMS

Canoemobile

Canoemobile brings classroom learning outside, engaging youth and young adults to improve school performance, cultivate a stewardship ethic, and create pathways to pursue academic and career opportunities in the outdoors.

Gateway to Adventure

Gateway To Adventure is an innovative program designed to provide people with cognitive disabilities the opportunity to learn and practice the kinds of social and practical skills typically needed to have a safe, enjoyable outdoor adventure experience.

Outdoor Career Academy

Creates pathways to employment for underserved urban youth and youth with disabilities through training and mentorship. During Outdoor Career Academy, youth earn credentials in First Aid, CPR, Leave No Trace, and more. Wilderness Inquiry partners with outdoor organizations and agencies to connect youth to jobs and internships.
