The 2018 annual application cycle has begun for the Poudre Wilderness Volunteers.  The link to the on-line application is available January 10 to March 5, at the SurveyMonkey website. 

Think about attending one of our preview events to meet some of our volunteers, learn more about what PWV is and does, the training, and ask questions.

First Preview Event

February 1 (Thursday), 6:30-8:00 p.m.
US Forest Service Visitor Center Conference Room
2150 Centre Avenue, Building E, Fort Collins

Second Preview Event

February 24 (Saturday), 10:00-11:30 a.m.
Community Room, Council Tree Library at Front Range Village
Front Range Village, 2733 Council Tree Ave, Ft. Collins

After the application closes, we will be scheduling brief interviews on March 24 and 31 (Saturdays).  Applicants who are selected then enter a training phase that is mandatory:  for stock riders a horse evaluation on May 5, and for everyone, the evening of April 25 and the weekend of May 18-20. The obligation of membership is six days of patrolling between June 1 and October 1, and we schedule those patrols for you the first year, according to your availability and preferences.  This 22-year-old all-volunteer organization now has about 320 members, aged 18-over 80, who ride and hike with a purpose, serving the US Forest Service and everyone who values our wilderness.
