We cultivate land stewardship through volunteerism and provide the public with opportunities to enjoy public lands while making a difference on-the-ground. Our professionally-facilitated wilderness service outings are a highlight of our volunteer Wilderness Stewardship program. From restoring streamside riparian areas to repairing wilderness trails and monitoring recreation impacts, thousands of volunteers have enjoyed our weekend field excursions to every corner of the state.
Education is an important component of our field programs. Volunteers learn about the natural and human history of the place they visit. The Wild Stew program fosters deeper understandings of public lands management and personal connections to wild places, while empowering volunteers with the tools necessary to advocate for their protection.
