Wilderness Volunteers

Trail Crew

Founded by Deborah Northcutt in 1997, Wilderness Volunteers brings together a love of adventure and a desire to help and serve by organizing volunteers for the stewardship of public wild lands. They have partnered with public land agencies including the National Park Service, the Forest Service, the Bureau of Land Management and the US Fish and Wildlife Service to take on backlog trail maintenance projects that without volunteered time and manpower would otherwise go undone. In 2012 alone, over 50 volunteer service projects contributed over half-a-million dollars of donated labor.

Their service trip season runs from March to October, and each one week trip ranges in difficulty and remoteness of location. Land agencies provide tools and supervision, but all trips are organized and lead by Wilderness Volunteer leaders. There is a participation fee that covers all meals during the project. Each trip is designed to leave time to explore and enjoy the wilderness, and volunteers learn Leave No Trace outdoor living skills and ethics.
