Hands on Conservation

The sustainable future of National Forests depends on volunteer communities taking responsibility for the places that mean the most to them. Wild South empowers people to participate in the daily essentials of wild lands preservation.


Hands on Science

The South’s rich variety of plants and animals can only be conserved when people pitch in to inform and implement science-based programs. Wild South’s citizen scientists gather data to drive policy, and work together to tackle the challenges faced by their forests.


Hands on Advocacy

Public lands means public involvement in the projects planned on those lands. Wild South coordinates collaboration, researches the forest’s real needs, and makes it possible for National Forest communities to affect management of their land.


“The movement for the preservation by the nation of sections of the wilderness as national playgrounds is essentially a democratic movement in the interest of all our people.”

- Theodore Roosevelt,
