Eagle Summit Wilderness Alliance

Keep Wilderness Wild

Mission

ESWA’s mission is to support the Forest Service to preserve the integrity of the Summit and Eagle county wilderness resource for its own sake and to sustain the character of the wilderness experience for its visitors. We achieve our mission by deploying volunteer resources to implement boots-on-the-ground field programs focused on stewardship and education and by enabling the application of private funds to accomplish local wilderness objectives.

Volunteer Wilderness Rangers (VWRs)

ESWA wilderness rangers hike Wilderness trails and educate visitors about Wilderness ethics. VWRs inform visitors with: information on the trail system, Leave No Trace ethics, how to handle encounters with wildlife, and the unique qualities that make Wilderness special. During the recent year, 12,000 wilderness visitors were encountered on 400 patrols across 2,700 miles and 25 trails.

Population(s) Served

Our volunteer sawyers are trained to remove safely fallen trees from Wilderness area trails using non-mechanized cross-cut saws. Clearing deadfall trees is an important safety issue and improves hiker access to Wilderness areas. Recent year statistics: 800 deadfall trees removed from 14 Wilderness area trails.

Population(s) Served

Our volunteer rangers staff information tables at popular trailheads to share information on trail conditions and best practices in the Wilderness areas.

Population(s) Served

Our trained volunteers identify sites of invasive weed infestations. The organization applies for and receives grants for use in hiring professionals to treat the problem weed areas.
