Volunteers Receive Training To Help Monitor Arizona’s Wilderness

Arizona-Wilderness-CoalitionThe understaffed United States Forest Service is getting more help in monitoring more than one-million acres of Arizona wilderness.  Over the weekend, another 30 volunteers for the Arizona Wilderness Coalition stewardship program received training to begin monitoring ecological and recreational conditions in the state’s wild areas.  

The Coalition’s Sam Frank says it is a chance for people to give back while enjoying something they already love – being outdoors.

While hiking, volunteers gather data that helps the Forest Service preserve the wilderness areas while maintaining recreational opportunities.
