Outdoors Without Limits (OWL) is all about EDUCATION and OPPORTUNITIES!
We want to EDUCATE those with disabilities about activities in the outdoors and offer them the OPPORTUNITY to participate. Through our local chapter system we are able create opportunities and provide participation in the great outdoors.
Nearly 250,000 people each year stop pursuing outdoor passions due to illness or injury. Many thousands more born with disabilities, have never had the opportunity to experience the woods and water. However, we know for certain that when an outdoor experience is provided to a disabled person, we begin to change their lives.
Our organization is designed to increase awareness, resources and opportunities that directly impact people and the communities where they live. We strive to challenge stereotypes about disability and promote awareness of “ability” in a positive environment.
Together, we will help change stereotypes about what defines “ability”. And, through action, we build relationships that change spirits and lives.
Providing opportunities through OWL National and Chapter events changes the lives of everyone involved - disabled and non-disabled alike.
