WHAT WE DO

OUR MISSION

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.

 



 

WHO WE ARE

WHERE WE DO IT

We partner with the Hahns Peak/Bears Ears, Yampa, and Park's Ranger Districts to perform work in the Mount Zirkel, Sarvis Creek, and Flat Tops Wildernesses, which are within the Routt and White River National Forests. Our Wilderness areas contain over 440,000 acres, 3330 miles of trails, 280 ponds and lakes, miles of high country fishable streams/lakes, and 15 peaks over 12,000 feet. Learn more about our Wilderness areas at www.wilderness.net

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.
