Volunteers are the heart of Friends of Scotchman Peaks Wilderness. They are the core of our board of directors, trail teams, Winter Tracks instructors, Trail Ambassadors and more. They’re a part of the wilderness family. 

We try to repay the favor our volunteers give us on a daily basis. They earn a volunteer hat and other swag, and the Friends host appreciation events to thank them for their hard work. Volunteering is also a great way to build wilderness skills and earn crosscut saw certifications or to take wilderness and remote first aid or learn how to dig tread. 

Do you have a special talent or skill — or just a passion for wild places? You’d be surprised how many interests and areas of expertise can be applied to conservation work. Check out some of the volunteer opportunities here. Or email info@scotchmanpeaks.org to see how you can help save our wild backyard.
