Stewards of America’s Wild Heritage

The Alliance for Wilderness Education and Stewardship is a non-profit wilderness stewardship organization dedicated to the restoration and preservation of the National Wilderness Preservation System through citizen stewardship projects and public education.  Through our efforts we engage the many stakeholders and organizations involved in wilderness recreation, research, education, management and stewardship in order to jointly address the needs of wilderness.  It is our belief that wilderness management without citizen involvement is not enough, and citizen involvement without wilderness education is not sustainable.  Coordinating and organizing citizen stewardship projects and education is our goal.

We are unique in the wilderness conservation community
