2015 Wilderness Report: WASO Wilderness Stewardship Program


The mission of the National Park Service (NPS) Wilderness Stewardship Program (WSD) is to identify and advance park lands to become part of the National Wilderness Preservation System and to steward those lands at the highest level of wilderness protection.

The program trains NPS staff and educates the public about wilderness character, values, and ethics. Further, the program works closely with its sister agencies and external partners to enhance capacity and engage stakeholders in becoming global stewards of our remaining wild landscapes.

Save wild places. Inspire generations. Foster stewardship. Offer hope.
