Welcome to Friends of Wilderness.
Friends of Wilderness is an all volunteer, not-for-profit, 501(c)(3) organization.

The mission of FRIENDS OF WILDERNESS (FOW) is to assist the US FOREST SERVICE (USFS) in managing and protecting WILDERNESS areas in the ROUTT NATIONAL FOREST and parts of the WHITE RIVER NATIONAL FOREST.

In support of this mission, FOW in conjunction with the USFS, recruits, trains, equips and fields volunteers to serve as rangers and trail crew for the purposes of educating the public and providing other appropriate support to help manage our local WILDERNESS areas.
