I can’t say it better than The Bob Marshall Wilderness Foundation says it on their website. So I plagiarized their own words by copying and pasting them here:
The Bob Marshall Wilderness Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to restoring and preserving the trail system and wilderness values in the Bob Marshall Wilderness Complex. We accomplish our mission through cooperation with the US Forest Service, partner groups, individual volunteers and generous donors.
How Do We Do This?
Working with four different National Forests in the Bob Marshall Wilderness Complex, we identify trail system improvements and then create educational, challenging, environmentally minded and scenic trail service projects into “The Bob”. The Bob Marshall Wilderness Foundation helps coordinate crew leadership, work itineraries, food menus, tool and equipment needs, pack support and post project reports to the Forest Service for every project.
Who We Work With
Our partners include the US Forest Service, youth programs, conservation organizations, university groups, volunteer packers, local businesses and thousands of individual volunteers across the country. One of the primary objectives of the Bob Marshall Wilderness Foundation is to provide an opportunity for volunteers, especially youth, to develop team building skills, learn new skills including Leave No Trace backcountry ethics, and develop wilderness awareness while participating on volunteer projects.
Sarah Kmon’s Perspective
“The Bob” is one of the most spectacular places I have ever been. What does that mean coming from a gal who lives in boring old White Sulphur Springs? I’ll tell you:
One, White Sulphur Springs is not boring, the Smith River Valley is beautiful.
Two, I have seen pristine, gorgeous lanscapes from the top of far off places such as: the Brandberg Massif in Namibia; Mogollon Baldy in the Gila Wilderness, New Mexico; Ben Vorlich, Scotland; Ben Nevis, Scotland; Ben Somethingelse, Scotland; the Organ Mountains, Las Cruces New Mexico; Sacajawea, Bozeman, MT; and some random park above Little Apex in the Bob Marshall Wilderness Complex. And the Bob Marshall Wilderness is one of the most spectacular places I have ever been.
These are some photos that I took during my time in the Bob.
I took this by putting the lens of the camera up to the looking glass of the binoculars. I am an uberprofessional photographer.
I strongly recommend a trip to the Bob Marshall Wilderness. Either to volunteer with the Foundation itself and really experience it, or by going for a trip into the backcountry.
We are hugely grateful to the Bob Marshall Wilderness Foundation for all their support. So yes, we are a little biased. But did you see the pictures? You don’t have to be biased to enjoy such a beautiful place. Go see for yourself. Then come and tell us what you thought. And show us your uberprofessional pictures.
