Protecting Natural Spaces with the Southern Appalachian Wilderness Stewards


Southern Appalachian Wilderness Stewards (SAWS) is a conservation non-profit dedicated to providing stewardship to protected public lands in the Southern Appalachian region, including in Tennessee, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Virginia, West Virginia, Arkansas, and Kentucky. This fellowship will allow you to explore the world of wilderness stewardship including the benefits of being in nature, how to incorporate wilderness/nature education into the classroom and bring your classes outside. You will learn about the significance of the Wilderness Act of 1964 and how it protects natural spaces for future generations. You will spend time outdoors connecting to local parks, trails and wilderness areas. There is no better way to learn about the benefits of nature than to get outside!
