To celebrate the 50th Anniversary Act we are working hard this year to get more of our members patrolling in our four wilderness areas. To this end, we have initiated a Get Into Wilderness! program. The purpose of this program is to pair PWV volunteers who would like to overnight in the wilderness, but whose wilderness skills, equipment, or physical limitations are such that they don't feel comfortable going alone, with more experienced PWV volunteers who have offered to provide support for anyone who would like to go with them.

PWV has already started initial clean up by salvaging material from one of the bridges which may be used in the future.

Kevin Cannon, PWV’s USFS liaison has been assessing the flood damage to many of our trails since the mid-September flooding. He began the exploration in a helicopter when it was still raining, and continues to visit and assess the restoration work ahead. The saddest news is that much of the destruction took place on trails that were recently restored and improved with many hours of work by PWV Volunteers. Below is a summary of his findings to date.
