ESWA is committed to the health and preservation of the three Wilderness Areas located in Eagle and Summit Counties, Colorado - Eagles Nest, Holy Cross, and Ptarmigan Peak (see map below). We'd love to have you join us!
We help the US Forest Service look after these Wilderness Areas. While they contain some remote and rugged terrain, they are nevertheless fragile ecosystems that are slow to heal and are being "loved to death." More than 50,000 visitors hiked on one trail alone in Eagles Nest last year!
We invite you to view our website to learn more about ESWA and how you can get involved in helping protect these precious Wilderness areas.
WHAT'S NEW AT ESWA?
We are expanding our impact by launching two new programs this summer!
ESWA VWRs will guide hikes with 4th and 5th graders attending summer camps through YouthPower365, a Vail Valley Foundation program providing educational opportunities for youth in Eagle Valley.
