National Wilderness Stewardship Awards

The National Wilderness Stewardship Alliance in partnership with the Society of Wilderness Stewardship is pleased to announce the creation of the National Wilderness Stewardship Awards.

The wilderness stewardship community is filled with ordinary people doing extraordinary work in some of America’s most amazing and remote landscapes.  Unfortunately, their work often goes unnoticed, leaving Wilderness to suffer as a result.  By showing people their work is important now, we can build a more sustainable wilderness stewardship community for the future.

This awards program will allow organizations and partners to nominate a steward, organization, or Federal land agency whom they feel has demonstrated outstanding ability in the following categories:

Nominations will be accepted August 21st through September 30th, with the awards being presented at the National Wilderness Workshop this October.

Additional information about these awards, including application materials, may be found on the NWSA website at

Questions about the awards program may be addressed to Randy Welsh, Executive Director, NWSA at or by calling 801-808-2167.
