Serving in partnership
with the United States Forest Service
Who Are We?
The San Gorgonio Wilderness Association is a non-profit
group dedicated to protecting the San Bernardino National Forest (Southern California),
including the San Gorgonio Wilderness (click here for vicinity
map), and to serving the public visiting the forest. These services are provided through
the generous donation of time by nearly 120 volunteers and
contribution of funds by individuals who enjoy our
National Forest and Wilderness areas and wish to help protect these precious resources for
use by themselves and future generations. Contributions are used for patrol, program, and
maintenance supplies; training of volunteers; and administration costs including postage,
printing, and insurance.
With ever decreasing Forest Service funds and personnel, it
has become more essential for SGWA volunteers to continue providing the following
- Lead nature walks and programs.
- Completely staff and manage the Barton
Flats Visitor Center.
- Patrol trails throughout the forest and wilderness to assist
visitors, clean up litter and illegal fire rings, and call in emergency medical care.
- Construct and maintain trails throughout the forest.
How can I help the San Gorgonio
There are several ways you can help
the San Gorgonio Wilderness Association. How can you help?
By becoming a volunteer
note: The Volunteer Program is best suited to local California residents as
neither the San Gorgonio Wilderness Association or the United States Forest Service offer
room and board or stipends for volunteers in the program. Additionally, volunteers will
need transportation to commute between their residence and the place of volunteer duty.
By becoming a
contributing member and making a much needed and tax-deductible
donation. Any contribution is appreciated and will help us
continue our valuable work.
