Ascend could not exist without the extensive community resources on which it draws.

Community support and appreciation for Ascend was recently affirmed during the October 22, 2016, Ascend Wilderness Experience Benefit Dinner and Polka Party, which celebrated the organization’s work while also raising funds for the 2017 season.  More than 30 community volunteers, assisted during the event, and dozens of local businesses and individuals contributed supplies and donations leading up to the event.

We need volunteers to help in our continued fundraising efforts, which include a membership drive and a documentary film series.   As the 2017 season approaches we will also need volunteers to assist with programming.  If you would like to get involved please email us at:


Thank you!
