Arizona Wilderness Coalition & Friends of the Verde River Stewardship Training – February 16 – 17, 2019

The Arizona Wilderness Coalition in collaboration with the Friends of the Verde River is excited to announce a special hands-on experience that will introduce you to the concept of wilderness stewardship. Join them for this two-day event in Prescott National Forest’s beautiful Cedar Bench Wilderness.

You will learn about and discuss:

  • topics surrounding the history and laws governing Wilderness
  • the seven leave no trace principles
  • how to properly identify problems areas and execute maintenance
  • river monitoring
  • becoming a volunteer
  • and much more!

This training course is exactly what you need to help grow your skill set and understand the value and importance of stewardship of Arizona’s Wilderness and Wild and Scenic Rivers.
