AboutWCS’s Society of the Wild Rockies aims to build a bold, diverse and activated citizen base to Rewild the Rockies. To Rewild the Rockies, we need to elevate new voices, rewild the human imagination, reconnect to the culture of the wild, and inspire action.
By elevating a new set of voices and values in support of wild nature, we will see conservation transformed into a force that unites rather than divides.
We will see a unique, equitable, and diverse group working together towards a common goal and comprised not only of nonprofits and academia, but also Indigenous leaders, storytellers, artists, ranchers, corporations, and creative agents. We will hear from new voices, sharing their stories.

Will you share your story?
Tell us about your wild, where you find it, how you connect to it and protect it—or any
other inspired, feral thoughts. Stories are the strands that weave us all together. In an increasingly disconnected world we can find connection to our natural heritage by sharing our stories and articulating how we will protect our wild.
Ambassadors, or ‘Rewilders’, are key to creating and leading local action nodes that are instrumental in building an enduring movement for the conservation of the Rockies and the communities that call this magnificent region home. Help us fire people up and stand together for the Wild Rockies.
Connect to others and the wild by joining with others to learn and inspire action to Rewild the Rockies
