Managing wilderness is different from managing any other public land. The unique considerations and requirements of designated wilderness areas necessitate an in-depth understanding of the Wilderness Act, both in text and in spirit. The Wilderness Stewardship Certificate Program exists to support wilderness professionals and those who work in related areas. Our suite of online courses, one-on-one mentoring by wilderness experts, and action-based learning components comprise the premier training program for anyone interested in stewarding our wilderness areas.
The mission of the Wilderness Stewardship Certificate Program (WSCP) is to develop and strengthen the wilderness stewardship capacity in nonprofit and federal, state, and local government agencies through a mixture of online and guided study for individuals engaged in wilderness stewardship.
