Volunteers are central to the protection and careful management of the Sylvania Wilderness. We expect to have several volunteer opportunities in 2013; and we will post information on this page as soon as it becomes available. Please leave your name at firstname.lastname@example.org if interested in general, but contact people listed under each project directly.
Sierra Club Sylvania Wilderness Project, June 14-18, 2013
The pristine Sylvania Wilderness is being invaded by non-native thistles. Help the Friends of Sylvania remove these invasives and enjoy the beauty of this special place. You can also practive portaging and canoe camping to prepare for your other summer expeditions.
We will begin Friday, June 14, with a pizza dinner, introductions, orientation, and a movie. We will finish on Tuesday, June 18. The first evening will be car camping and the remainder will be backcountry canoe camping. Meals will be coordinated cooperatively to minimize expenses and maximize quality. Fees are $50/person. We have 11 places open. If interested, we need your response by May 30, 2013.
Canoes are available for discount rental.
