Vista Outdoor Supports Canoeing Event for More than 400 Students in Utah

Wilderness Inquiry’s “Canoemobile” recently spent time in Vista Outdoor’s backyard, taking students from four local schools canoeing on the Jordan River. The two-day event took more than 400 students from four schools canoeing on the Jordan River.  As Wilderness Inquiry’s new partner, Vista Outdoor donated CamelBak water bottles to help keep participants hydrated. In addition to canoeing, students received instruction on local wildlife and the interconnectedness of ecosystems.

Wilderness Inquiry, a non-profit organization, conducts trips and programs that introduce people of all ages, backgrounds and abilities to the outdoors in positive, life-changing ways. This was their first adventure in Utah.

Christine Tomlinson, Wilderness Inquiry Outdoor Leader, said of the two-day event, “Our partners, volunteers, chaperones, and teachers were extremely grateful and excited for this new program. When the students came off the water, everyone said they wished they had more time on the river. I can’t wait to see what’s ahead for Wilderness Inquiry in Utah.”
