Ventana Wilderness Alliance
September 10, 2013

I have served on the Board of the Ventana Wilderness Alliance since its inception. Beginning with the successful passage of the Big Sur Wilderness and Conservation Act of 2002, which added 50,000 acres of unprotected public wildlands to the Ventana and Silver Peak Wilderness Areas along California’s spectacular Big Sur Coast, the VWA has grown into the key organization that fights to keep the Ventana Region public wildlands wild. In addition, the VWA performs thousands of hours of public trail maintenance each year with both volunteers and professional crews; staffs Volunteer Wilderness Rangers in the Ventana backcountry to assist visitors and monitor human impacts; and guides disadvantaged area youth into the backcountry for their, often life changing, first wilderness experience.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

There is so much more that needs to be done to protect the Ventana Region wildlands and restore trails and other resources. To do more we need more volunteers and more donors.
