Join us to discover Arizona's wilderness areas and to celebrate your wild place!

Please RSVP only when you are ready to secure a spot on a Wild Stew trip, as we are limited to 12-15 people in wilderness areas. You will be prompted to create a Meetup account or signin to Meetup (also via Facebook). Meetup is free and does not sell or rent your information to third parties.

January 30-31st :: Chiricahua Wilderness :: Trail Restoration

We are excited to invite you to our fourth & final trail restoration event in the Chiricahua Wilderness! We've been steadily working toward the end of the Green Canyon and Hoovey Canyon trails, which were were heavily impacted by the Horseshoe Fire and subsequent flooding from heavy rain. We will brush out this densely overgrown trail, remove logs, and re-establish tread in washed out areas. Please join us for this overnight car-camping trip, and a well-deserved celebration of completion! Learn more & RSVP.

February 6-7th :: Castle Creek Wilderness :: Trail Maintenance & Sign Installation

Join us on this two-day event in Castle Creek Wilderness, nestled in the Bradshaw Mountains between Phoenix and Prescott. We will be focusing on trail brushing and sign installation along the Castle Creek Trail (#239). This is a high-use access route to Hell's Hole, where Thief Creek and Poland Creek converge to form pools, and nearby Big Dipper Falls. It'll probably be too cold for swimming, but you'll want to return in the summer! Learn more & RSVP.

February 20th :: Cochise Stronghold :: Erosion Control

We're partnering with the Climbing Association of Southern Arizona (CASA) and the Access Fund for this year's "Adopt-a-Crag" event. Join us for a day of stewardship as we work on erosion control along the approach to Sheep's Head and Trad Rock in Cochise Stronghold West. All volunteers must attend a safety briefing at 9am in order to participate. AWC and CASA will provide a thank-you dinner Saturday night. You are welcome to camp the evening before, or stay Saturday night and climb, hike, or explore on Sunday! Learn more & RSVP.

February 27-28th :: Superstition Mountains Wilderness :: Trail Restoration

We are heading into the Superstitions - a well-loved wilderness just east of Phoenix. We'll be backpacking along the First Water, Boulder, and Black Mesa trails, while continually trail brushing to our overnight location. Learn more & RSVP.

March 19-20th :: Superstition Mountains Wilderness :: Trail Restoration

We're heading back to the Superstitions, but this time to the eastern section of the Wilderness. Our exact location is still to be confirmed, but we will continue to perform light trail maintenance (primarily brushing) while backpacking to an overnight, backcountry location. Learn more & RSVP.
