Testimonials

I have been a member since I was 8 years old!

Sonja Leverkus, member

Being around like-minded individuals who are willing to volunteer their time for an organization that, year after year, achieves incredible results is not only fun, but also a great opportunity to learn and grow!

Jeff Hubbick, member & volunteer

This organization is admirable in its committment to protection of these sacred wild spaces and in its effective and respectful collaboration with Native people and other environmental groups. I would highly encourage others to get involved with this amazing organization !

Cheryl Blair, volunteer & supporter

I came from Spain to volunteer @ the Seton Portage Aboriginal Farm and Trail Project near Lillooet, BC. I spent my days either working on the Indian Reserve Community Farm, or helping re-open ancient First Nation Trails in the Wilderness. I intended to spend only 2 weeks but instead stayed for a month! What a WILD place! Thanks for the opportunity!

Guillermo Flores volunteer

It was a WILD summer having 42 WWOOFERs (organic farm volunteers from all over the world) stay with my extended family on our land at Seton Portage. Thanks to the Wilderness Committee for organizing this and thanks for all the help building trails, cabins, working on the farm, and caring for the land.

Three things make the Wilderness Committee the ideal environmental volunteer experience for me: first, the Committee has an uncompromising commitment to the environment and wildlife; secondly, its staff is forthright, friendly, passionate, politically savvy, committed, funny, and great to work with; and lastly, the Committee provides constructive opportunities to get directly involved in a wide range of activities, campaigns, and issues for the benefit of the environment and wildlife.

The Wilderness Committee is the most grassroots environmental organization I have ever encountered. I have taken part in several projects where volunteers were in charge and staff in a support role. It's very empowering, and I have also made friends for life.

Ivan Doumenc, member and volunteer

Coming from Germany on a Biology Internship, I spent three months in the Wilderness Committee office mapping critical habitat for the endangered seabird, the Marbled Murrelet. My work involved data and statistical analysis, quantifying habitat variables, assessing habitat quality and conducting road density calculations. I also spent some great time in the wilderness doing research.
