Wilderness Fellows

The Wilderness Fellows program is SWS' premier vehicle to preserve wilderness and keep it wild and full of adventure.  Fellows provide land management agencies with high-level, professional expertise on a variety of projects; and and in turn are connected to the next step in their career.  Fellows are placed around the country, and tackle tasks such as: wilderness character monitoring (compiling a report showing the health of a wilderness so that it can be managed to maintain that health), solitude monitoring (assessing whether a wilderness has opportunities for solitude), and recreation planning (permit analysis and implementation, stewardship and ranger assignments).  Fellows are often lauded for their knowledge and performance.  When on assignment, they have been asked to lead trainings for agency staff, present to college classes, and provide expert analysis of management tactics.  Contact us to learn more about being a Fellow or hosting a Fellow.  Click here to meet this year's class of Fellows.
