Our Mission is stewardship of America's wild lands through organizing and promoting volunteer service in cooperation with public land agencies.

Celebrating our 25th Year

Giving Something Back

Wilderness Volunteers has been providing affordable opportunities for everyone to participate in the hands-on stewardship of public lands since 1997. Working in cooperation with the US Forest Service, National Park Service, the BLM, the US Fish & Wildlife Service and others, you’ll be inspired and invigorated when you see how much a group can accomplish in a few days.

Support Wilderness Volunteers!

Wilderness Volunteers is cultivating a passion for Wilderness! We are a national nonprofit organizing volunteers for stewardship projects in cooperation with public land agencies across the USA.
