It could be swinging a Pulaski to improve a wilderness trail. Or sharing the joy of nature by leading a hike. It could be keeping tabs on the local flora and fauna. Stewardship comes in many forms. And in total, they are more than the sum of their parts in advancing the wilderness cause.

The Friends of Scotchman Peaks offers a regular schedule of events and opportunities to put stewardship into practice. Do you have a special skill or talent that could help save the wild Scotchmans? There are more ways to help than you might think! Whether it be working a trail crew or talking to children about trees, it all serves the same cause. 


There’s no better way to show love for Scotchman Peaks than volunteering for trail crews. It’s the work that keeps our wild backyard open for everyone. You can join a group trail day or adopt a trail to go out solo or as a family unit! Read More
