What We Do
SAWS was born from a need for stewardship across the southeast. In just over a decade, SAWS has grown to be a leader in wilderness stewardship, training, and education. We work hard to take care of the wild and beloved remote areas that the public loves to recreate in. SAWS hires enthusiastic, talented youth and adults, providing workforce capacity in traditional skills, land management, trail maintenance/construction, and environmental conservation. We also love to engage with our community to help keep wilderness relevant and connect the public to the natural world through volunteer opportunities and local events.
