“It is the Mission of the Absaroka Beartooth Wilderness Foundation to support stewardship of the Absaroka-Beartooth Wilderness and to foster appreciation of wild lands.”
The ABWF provides a wide variety of active opportunities that connect people in deeper, more meaningful ways with their Wilderness.
The impact these Fun Run funds have on our organization is extremely important. Primarily we will use the money to fund our Wilderness Internship which each year allows us to sponsor 3-4 college-aged volunteers who come for the summer to do trail-building and maintenance alongside Forest Service trail crews. These funds also pay for the ABWF to put on trail projects for everyday volunteers who want to give back to their trails and their wilderness. Lastly, we intend to increase our educational outreach about the importance of wild lands in our local schools and be able to invite school groups to the Wilderness for educational programs such as winter ecology snowshoe walks.
