Access to nature is integral to the human spirit. It is for the greater good, the whole of humanity, enabling people of all ages and abilities to connect and be reawakened in our natural world. Access Ability Wisconsin works to make nature accessible to everyone by providing opportunities for individuals with mobility challenges (whether acquired at birth or later in life) to access nature and outdoor recreational experiences with minimal environmental impact while promoting access, inclusion, equity, and healthy living. They provide outdoor wheelchairs and trailers at no cost* to help individuals explore nature and create their own outdoor adventures. They strive to increase public access to nature and recreational opportunities while promoting environmental stewardship from education to leadership. They collaborate on community-driven programs and services that empower individuals of diverse backgrounds and all ages, and they encourage organizations and individuals to engage in transformational thinking around experiences and assumptions as an individual and organization.
