We want to build our veteran community through group hikes in Louisiana. Our goal is to grow a veteran community centered around outdoor activities such as backpacking, hiking, and kayaking.  We strongly encourage veterans to attend but our events are open to non-veterans as well.  We just ask that non-veterans give a small donation to our veteran wilderness therapy program.  This will support our veteran community and directly help fund our program. These hikes will feature an introduction to backpacking and hiking lecture and a “Day Hike” through a Louisiana wilderness area where we put into action some of the basic skills that we will cover. These wilderness hikes are meant to create an outdoor experience that is physically challenging and rewarding while engaging with other veterans and building a community of like-minded vets with shared experiences. These hikes will be posted on our social media accounts as well as on our website through our events tab. The list below will show the upcoming dates and wilderness locations:

  • 1/27/2024 – Acadiana Park – Navigation Course
