Sawtooth Wilderness, ID (2007)

In case you missed the news amidst the holiday shuffle, the summer and fall trips are on the website! You’ll notice many old favorites as well as several new locations. Check them out here.

Is this your year to finally try canoeing in the Boundary Waters, planting native plants and battling invasive species in Hawaii, or exploring Alaska? How about doing trail work in Colorado’s Raggeds Wilderness, surrounded by world-class wildflowers? Or conducting a trail survey in Oregon’s Three Sisters Wilderness, with views of distant (and dormant) volcanoes?

Looking for the trail less traveled? Head for the Lee Metcalf Wilderness, just west of Yellowstone; the Apache Kid Wilderness in the wildlands of New Mexico; or the Mission Mountain Wilderness above Montana’s Swan Valley. While many people are drawn to places that boast household names, there is much to be said for the solitude and mystery of these “hidden gems.” All possess outstanding beauty without the crowds. And all have lots of work to be done and are grateful for volunteers.
