Last year marked the launch of Adventure with Purpose, our new strategic plan in which we recommitted ourselves to:

  • Lead innovation in outdoor education. We want anyone inspired to learn outdoor skills to have that opportunity with The Mountaineers through our books and programs.
  • Engage a vibrant community of outdoor enthusiasts. This priority is centered on fostering a Mountaineers community where all people can find inspiration and belonging.
  • Advocate on behalf of the natural world. This work accelerates our ability to protect the outdoor experience and educate advocates to recreate responsibly and respectfully.

These three strategic priorities, rooted in our core values, have catalyzed growth and improvements across our mission-driven
programs and publications. This report details our progress. In light of all we accomplished last year, we’re particularly inspired by how interconnected these priorities are. Our core values are most fully realized where our priorities intersect: volunteer leadership creates a culture of belonging outdoors, equitable access and advocacy go hand-in-hand, and outdoor education inspires an authentic appreciation and care for the natural world.

We hope as you read through this report that you will be inspired by all that you make possible in our community. Thank you for working with us toward a world where our adventures extend beyond the reach of our own personal enjoyment and where all people can confidently enjoy the natural world and are inspired to protect it. We are endlessly grateful for the thousands of people who invest their time and resources into making this vision a reality.
