As Memorial Day approaches, we take time to reflect on the sacrifices made by our heroes and express our gratitude for the protected lands they fought for. Memorial Day is not only a time for remembrance but also an opportunity to recognize the importance of conservation and inclusive access to nature for all individuals.
At Wild Tribute, we believe that our commitment to conservation goes hand in hand with supporting initiatives that promote inclusivity and ensure accessible outdoor experiences. We are proud to have partnered with two incredible programs that embody these values: All Terrain Wheelchairs and Yosemite Conservancy's "No Limits" Program.

All Terrain Wheelchairs
Through our 4% contribution to All Terrain Wheelchairs, we have helped establish a fleet of wheelchairs within Georgia's State Park System. These remarkable chairs are meticulously designed with safety at the forefront, empowering Georgians who face mobility challenges to explore trails and navigate diverse terrains that were previously inaccessible. Qualifying park visitors now have the opportunity to experience a newfound sense of freedom, whether it's hiking, hunting, fishing, or engaging in other outdoor educational and recreational activities. These all-terrain track chairs not only provide physical accessibility but also enhance the overall outdoor experience, enabling individuals to forge deeper connections with nature while embracing the thrill and adventure that the outdoors has to offer.

No Limits Yosemite
In addition to our collaboration with All Terrain Wheelchairs, we have also contributed to Yosemite Conservancy's "No Limits" Program. This program is dedicated to opening Yosemite National Park's granite walls and rugged trails to wheelchair users, providing them with the necessary equipment and resources to experience the thrill of hand-cycling and rock climbing throughout Yosemite Valley over a four-day period. It not only allows individuals to push their personal limits but also helps them connect with the outdoors and our public lands in new and exciting ways. Through this program, participants not only engage in thrilling activities but also learn about Leave No Trace principles, becoming influential park stewards in their communities.
Through these collaborative partnerships, we not only promote inclusivity but also ensure the preservation of our natural heritage, allowing everyone to access the wonders of nature. As we commemorate Memorial Day and honor the sacrifices of our heroes, let us embrace the opportunity to venture outdoors, immerse ourselves in the beauty of nature, and experience the freedom and joy it brings.
