Helping the Elderly and Physically Challenged Enjoy the Outdoors
Formed in 2003, the North American Squirrel Association (n.a.s.a.) is a non-profit organization that grew out of a desire to provide physically challenged and elderly members of our community with outdoor opportunities such as hunting and fishing. Using donated funds and equipment from generous individuals and businesses in the Coulee Region, n.a.s.a. has been able to provide such opportunities free of charge to those in need, all the while continuing to grow.
We want to thank all the people and businesses who have donated to our cause over the years! If you go to the 'Friends of n.a.s.a.' page you will see our list of donors and their websites. We encourage you to show your thanks by shopping with them and use their services!
