The Great Rivers WSI gets its name from the region of America through which many rivers flow: the Mississippi, Missouri, Ohio, Buffalo, Arkansas, and Eleven-Point to name a few. The US Forest Service and the Southern Appalachian Wilderness Stewards (SAWS) are joining together again to offer shoulder-to-shoulder learning opportunities for agency staff, partners and volunteers to gain the knowledge and skills necessary to steward our country’s most protected landscapes—federally designated Wilderness.

2019 Great Rivers WSI Course Description

Students will begin the week split into one of two tracks, CPR and First Aid Certification or Tool Re-handling before coming together as a group in the crosscut saw training and certification course. The week will finish out with a wilderness stewardship course.
