About Us

for the greatest good

Our Mission

Our purpose is to partner with Deschutes and Willamette National Forests in caring for Central Oregon wilderness areas in the Cascade Mountains. Each summer these areas attract intense summer recreation use. The result is over 4200 backcountry campsites, widening trails, hundreds of pounds of trash each year, and other impacts. In partnership with the U.S. Forest Service, Friends of the Central Cascades Wilderness seeks to engage in activities which will:

  • Maintain wilderness for present and future generations.
  • Promote wilderness practices which minimize recreational impact.
  • Provide opportunities to learn about wilderness, low impact practices, and wilderness enjoyment.
