With dramatic cliffs and sweeping views at every turn, Yosemite is a beloved destination for hiking, climbing and other outdoor activities. The No Limits Adventure Project, led by two pioneers in adaptive outdoor recreation, gives wheelchair-users from underprivileged communities the chance to experience the thrill of scaling granite walls and traversing rugged trails.

This 2018 grant provided a diverse group of participants with a four-day experience in Yosemite. While in the park, the group explored the Valley through hand-cycling, rock-climbing and ranger-led programs. As they pushed their personal limits, the adventurers also connected with the environment in a new way, learned about Leave No Trace principles, and developed knowledge and skills to become stewards of the natural world.

Your gift helped some of Yosemite’s most underserved visitors find awe and adventure in a world-famous national park.
