So, why do we volunteer our time for these wilderness projects?  Is it for a good time?  Is it to keep the trails open to hikers?  Is it for the friendships that are established?  Is it for the skill sets and certifications?

Wilderness First Aid Instructor Jim Holland explains, “I feel that it’s important that everyone give something back to their community, to their state, to their country, to the environment that you live in.  If you enjoy doing something, you should give something back to it.  I have always tried to do that most of my life.”
