Ascend could not exist without the extensive community resources on which it draws.
Each summer Ascend facilitates volunteer stewardship work on our public lands, primarily in the Trinity Alps Wilderness Area. No experience is necessary to help us steward our public lands and adults and children are both welcome to participate. Activities can be as simple as monitoring for solitude or volunteering at trailheads to give information to hikers heading into the Trinity Alps. More extensive projects could include wilderness camp clean ups as you’re on your personal Trinity Alps trip, or joining a work crew to help brush or rebuild trails. Either check our summer schedule, or get in touch with us for an updated stewardship activity schedule.
Since 2015, usage of the Trinity Alps Wilderness Area has increased by 1400% while the local Forest Service Wilderness and Trails staff budgets have dwindled. Ascend recognizes the benefits of community collaboration with federal agencies as the future approach to public land management.
If you’d like to volunteer for Ascend on an organizational, administrative or event fundraising capacity, we could always use help in a variety of ways. Get in touch with us to discuss your individual interests to see how it aligns with our organizational needs.
