Our foundation’s work is anchored by four pillars of long-term conservation:  FIRST, increasing ranger patrols and enforcement across the JMT backcountry to assure everyone’s safety and to encourage legal campsites and sustainable practices that “leave no trace”;  SECOND, rehabilitating impacted wilderness across the region, to restore the natural processes supporting habitat, wildlife and clean water;   THIRD, providing master planning for resupply sites to restore connecting trails, support resupply logistics and provide public services suitable for wilderness terrain;   and FINALLY, public education on the best practices for trail and campsite protocols, and on the deep history of the JMT in the American conservation movement.
