Be a part of caring for the Bob Marshall Wilderness by putting your boots on the ground and leaving your mark on the trails in the Bob! This year you can help the Bob Marshall Wilderness Foundation clear and restore trails in the Great Bear, Bob Marshall and Scapegoat Wilderness areas. As a volunteer you will get to explore the Wilderness and give back to the Wilderness. Plan almost nothing and pay hardly anything for your Volunteer Vacation this year!
Types of Volunteer Work Available
Wilderness Service Projects with the Bob Marshall Wilderness Foundation are a great way to get outside and give back to The Bob. For many of the projects, no prior experience is necessary. We ask that you come motivated to work, prepared to have fun, and ready to make the project a success. The projects range in length from weekend projects to weeklong backpacking trips.
Appropriate Ages for Volunteer Opportunity18-81 yrs old and 12-18 with a parent or guardian
Special Skills that May be Required or Helpful
You only need to be in good shape and bring the motivation to work. On the longer backpacking trips and especially the more strenuous rated projects, you should have some experience carrying a backpack and hiking long distances over rugged terrain. These projects are not a good way to gain this experience and suggest volunteering for one of the easier rated trips first. There are various trips for all ability levels and you can contact Bob Marshall Wilderness Foundation to find an appropriate one for you. The BMWF crew leader will train each volunteer in trails maintenance skills! So no prior experience necessary.
