Wilderness Volunteers

Wilderness Volunteers is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization created in 1997 to provide affordable and meaningful volunteer service opportunities that conserve and protect America’s wild lands. WV works with public land agencies, including the US Forest Service, National Park Service, the BLM, and the US Fish & Wildlife Service.

The Overland Expo Foundation provided a grant to help remediate visitor impacts on Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument along the popular Hole in the Rock Road. In partnership with Grand Staircase Escalante Partners and the Bureau of Land Management, Wilderness Volunteers removed 19 campfire rings, rebuilt/mitigated 8 campfire rings, naturalized 14 unauthorized “ways”, constructed 2 rock baskets, installed 14 signs, and removed 1100 pounds of trash and charcoal.
