Volunteer for the Bob Marshall Wilderness Foundation

Explore ‘The Bob’ this summer…

Our Mission

“The Bob Marshall Wilderness Foundation connects Americans with their wilderness heritage by providing access to and stewardship of one of the world’s most spectacular places -Montana’s Bob Marshall Wilderness Complex, the crown jewel of the wilderness system. We help hundreds of hard-working volunteers, including youth, develop a land ethic and give back to the wilderness by opening trials, restoring heavily used areas, maintaining historic structures and fighting weeds. Active wilderness stewardship is our mission. We work with four different National Forests in the Bob Marshall Wilderness Complex to identify trail system improvements and then create educational and challenging conservation service projects in ‘The Bob.’ The foundation coordinates crew leadership, itineraries, food, tools, and equipment, pack support, and reports project accomplishments to the Forest Service. One of the primary objectives of the Bob Marshall Wilderness Foundation is to provide an opportunity for volunteers, especially youth, to develop team building skills, learn skills including ‘Leave No Trace’ back country ethics, and develop wilderness ethics while participating on volunteer projects.

“Explore Montana’s famed Bob Marshall Wilderness Complex while helping to maintain its extensive trail system. Projects vary in length from one day to an entire week of backpacking the the wilderness. Volunteers ages twelve and up are welcome. Bring your entire family on a volunteer vacation this year! Trips consist of clearing and maintaining trails during the day and relaxing or exploring the nearby creeks and peaks in the evenings. Lifelong friendships are often forged during these unforgettable wilderness journeys with plenty of time to bond during meals cooked together and stories around the campfire.
