Mission Statement

The North American Squirrel Association was formed in order to:

  • Help the physically challenged and elderly enjoy hunting and fishing opportunities and recreational activities.
  • Support and aid in events sponsored by the Wisconsin and Minnesota Departments of Natural Resources.  Such events include early disabled white tail deer hunts and duck hunts.
  • Aid individuals and other organizations with similar goals and objectives.
  • Contribute to the education of young people interested in the pursuit of outdoor activities related to hunting, fishing, and conservation.

N.a.s.a. Non-Discrimination and Non-Harassment Policy

It is the policy of the North American Squirrel Association, in recognition of its responsibility to its volunteers, service recipients, and the communities served, to provide equal opportunity to all people and to promote the full realization of that policy through a positive, continuing program to be known as the non-discrimination and non-harassment policy.
