Poudre Wilderness Volunteers (PWV) is an organization that supports the United States Forest Service (USFS) in patrolling nearly 70 forest and wilderness trails in Northern Colorado on horse and on foot.

September 6, 2014 marked the 50th anniversary of the Wilderness Act, one of our goals this year is to improve the wilderness skills of our members patrolling in the Canyon Land Ranger District.

We will be teaching authority of resource, Leave No Trace principles, basic & ultralight backpacking, GPS, map & compass, trail maintenance, wilderness first aid & CPR, safety & survival and other supplemental training classes for our members and others. Plus, we plan to offer a number of outdoor experience hikes or backpacking this year in one of four wilderness area: Cache La Poudre, Comanche Peak, Neota and Rawah.

Please come join us for these events or better yet, become a member of PWV and experience this great organization.  Visit our website at www.pwv.org at to learn more about us.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
