About us

Southern Appalachian Wilderness Stewards (SAWS) was created in 2010 to steward protected public lands in the national forests of the Southern Appalachian region, which includes areas in Tennessee, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, and Virginia.  The geographic footprint of SAWS includes 45 wilderness areas in 5 national forests, as well as several wilderness study and inventoried roadless areas. SAWS serves as a resource for the federal agencies, supplementing existing stewardship efforts and providing support where there are none.  Our organization focuses on engaging local communities across our landscape in active volunteerism and developing the next generation of public lands stewards. SAWS is an equal opportunity employer.
