Helping the Elderly and Physically Challenged Enjoy the Outdoors

Formed in 2003, The North American Squirrel Association (nasa) 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, nasa 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 utilize their services! 

 

 

 

NASA Fishing Event - Why we do what we do! 

When we first found out we were going to be parents, taking our son fishing was one of the first things my husband mentioned looking forward to. When we were given Liam's Down Syndrome diagnosis, it was also one of the first things he asked if he would be able to do. With little to no knowledge about the diagnosis we had our doubts and questions, though I confidently replied "why not!?" This past July 8th NASA (North American Squirrel Association) made the experience so much fun for our family, and from what we could tell, for every family that attended. We finally answered that doubt as we proudly watched, helped, and cheered Liam on as he reeled in his first fish. NASA volunteers took care of absolutely everything so that we didn't have to worry about anything but enjoying ourselves. They cooked the fish that were caught and were there to help with anything from providing fishing poles, replacing hooks, and even taking the fish off of the hook if needed. Visiting with families old and new is always so refreshing, and this event was not the exception. We are so grateful and cannot wait to do it again next year!

Thank you to Susy Fort for contributing this article.

Donated shotgun in use!

We'd like to say a big THANK YOU to the St. Joseph's Lions Club for the donation of this shotgun, which we lend out to disabled hunters who don't have their own gun to use.  Here it is in action during one of our recent pheasant hunts!
