"OUTDOORS Access 4 All!"
Access Ability Wisconsin, Inc., (AAW) is a grassroots 501(c)3 non-profit organization.
AAW is dedicated to facilitating and providing the means for individuals with mobility challenges to access and enjoy our natural resources.
Over 5.7 million acres of public land are in Wisconsin. Over 500,000 people in Wisconsin have some sort of disability that limits their access to that public land.
With all of the proven benefits of outdoor recreation, everyone should be able to enjoy the outdoors!
AAW works with
individuals on their outdoor adventures. (Reserve a chair and trailer today!)
organizations to make their outdoor events and activities accessible. (Reserve a single trailer or an event trailer with multiple chairs!)
organizations who want to bring AAW's equipment to their community to increase outdoors access. This is done by partnering and the organization becomes a "Host". (See the Hosting page for more information.)

AAW is working to place at least one all-terrain outdoor wheelchair (OWC) with an enclosed trailer in each of the 72 Wisconsin counties for community use is our long-term goal.
AAW's objective is to provide recreational opportunities for people with temporary and permanent physical challenges, including wheelchair users, who want to enjoy the great outdoors. AAW does collaborate with states all across the country.
This equipment is available to veterans and their families whether the person has a temporary or permanent mobility issue.
Thank you for your service to our country!
