You Can Help

Wilderness designation requires an act of congress.
Congressional action requires public support.

Your support is important to preserving and protecting the Scotchman Peaks!

There are many ways in which you can show support for the Scotchman Peaks. Begin by subscribing to our free quarterly newsletter and share your interest in the Scotchman Peaks with your friends, family and neighbors. Make you voice heard by write a letter to your local newspaper or to your congressman. Consider a donation of time by volunteering for one of our projects. Or consider a one time or monthly financial contribution.

While our campaign is assisted, in part, by generous contributions from foundation donors, assistance from individuals such as you are vital to our efforts. Together we can achieve our goal.

Here’s how you can help:

Volunteers are the backbone of the Friends of Scotchman Peaks Wilderness. Without volunteer efforts, we wouldn’t have a board of directors, trail crews, Wolverine and Weed Warriors, botanical survey crews, or outreach folks in booths at fairs, film festivals, and other public events. In other words, without our volunteers, Friends of Scotchman Peaks Wilderness would not exist.

Learn more about current volunteer opportunities (as well as all of our hikes and classes) on our events page.
