Entire Raggeds Wilderness Monitored by Volunteers!
Wow, what a successful summer of stewardship it was! WSCC volunteers, in cooperation with the Paonia Ranger District, were able to monitor ALL OF THE TRAILS WITHIN THE RAGGEDS WILDERNESS! The data collected through this monitoring assisted the Forest Service prioritize wilderness management actions, understand user patterns, and improve their wilderness stewardship – quite a service provided by our volunteers.
The Raggeds Wilderness has 80 miles of hiking trail within its boundaries – spanning 2 National Forests and 3 Ranger Districts.
Stay tuned for information on our 2019 Monitoring Program, which will be taking place in the West Elk Wilderness!
