Go To The Auction

Our 2020 online fundraising auction is coming up fast!

We need your help to make it a success.

Wilderness Volunteers is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization created in 1997 to organize and promote volunteer service to America's wild lands. We work with public land agencies including the National Park Service, the Forest Service, the Bureau of Land Management and the US Fish and Wildlife Service. Our goal is to provide low-cost service projects that give ordinary citizens the opportunity to experience our nation’s wild places while giving something back. In our 22-year history, WV has completed more than 900 needed service projects across the wild lands of the US, contributing well over 300,000 volunteer hours worth more than $7 million in volunteer labor.

Last year, Wilderness Volunteers contributed over 14,000 volunteer hours to our public lands, worth nearly $349,000.

As a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, we depend upon grants and donations to continue our program. In order to keep the costs to the participants as low as possible, we seek additional funding to offset program expenses. Our goal for the 2020 auction is $15,000. In order to meet this goal, we need your help!

Our annual auction is our single largest annual fundraising effort. Your support as an auction donor would help us continue to bring together volunteers to address critical projects for our public land agencies and promote engaged community stewardship of our nation’s wild places.
