Stewardship Courses

The Mountaineers offers a number of different courses focused on stewardship work in the Pacific Northwest.

Stewardship Courses

Stewardship of our public lands where we like to recreate is integral to our work as an organization, and has been a part of our history from our beginnings as a club. Stewardship courses teach the skills required to monitor and restore remote wilderness areas, maintain historic structures, and tend to the impacts caused by intensive recreational use at our state’s climbing areas. Skills learned in stewardship courses include leadership, trail building, and group dynamics and management to directly engage other members in the maintenance, conservation and restoration of our public lands.
