Wildlife habitat conservation is the number one priority of the Backcountry Wilderness Area. With 8,200 acres of property to maintain, we can always use a few extra hands! Volunteer opportunities include regularly scheduled trail maintenance, The Big Help! (our annual community volunteer day), Scout projects, team and group volunteer events, and help with our other annual events.
Stay up-to-date on current volunteer opportunities by following our Facebook page
(in the events section) and checking Volunteer Connect Douglas County (search for Backcountry Wilderness Area).
