ABOUT THE FRIENDS OF WILDERNESS
We are people who love to spend time in the mountains and on the trails. We value the protection of Wilderness and believe in Wilderness stewardship.
While we work with the U.S. Forest Service, we work for the Wilderness. We are volunteers who have agreed to assist the Forest Service where we can in their ongoing effort to manage our Wilderness areas.
While some of us enjoy meeting, greeting and education, other prefer to assist in trail maintenance and special projects. Everyone is welcome.
Would You Like To Be A Volunteer With Friends of Wilderness? FRIENDS OF WILDERNESS offers many different volunteer opportunities. Activities include patrolling trails, public education and trail maintenance. We provide support to the US Forest Service in three different WILDERNESS areas: Mt. Zirkel, Flattops and Sarvis Creek.
Climb the mountains and get their good teachings. Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop off like autumn leaves, - John Muir
