Iowa Veterans Outdoor Experience is a group of dedicated individuals that help our disabled Veterans get back out and enjoy the great Iowa outdoors.

Mission Statement: To provide opportunities for all Veterans to enjoy Iowa’s great outdoors.

Purpose: To give assistance, camaraderie and support to our Veterans and their families through various outdoor activities. Give our wounded Veterans opportunities that may not normally be available. Provide education for local and national agencies that are available to Veterans and their families.

IVOE was founded in 2018 by a group of members and friends of Solon American Legion, Stinocher Post 460 in Solon, Ia. Our board of directors consists of four Veterans and two Son’s of the American Legion. We had been assisting another group of Veterans and felt there was enough need to form our own organization.

We are a 501C3 non-profit, and registered in the State of Iowa. We are an approved organization with the Iowa DNR allowing us the opportunity to bring in out of state veterans for our hunts. We work closely with the US Army Corps of Engineers, Rock Island District.

All of our Board members and select volunteers have been through a VA Approved PTSD and Survivor Guilt training.
