Join the WNE organization!
Wilderness New England is currently accepting membership applications and program proposals.
Membership applications for large-tract property located in New England are reviewed twice each year.
WNE encourages groups and clubs to join WNE
Bring your outings, competitions, fundraising and social events to the wilderness!
WNE's primary objective is to preserve open wilderness space.
We feel that preserving this space for "nature to flourish" is a key component to a healthy New England environment. Equally important is providing limited and well-managed recreational opportunities. We feel that wilderness recreation is a key component to a healthy human "spirit". Anyone who has experienced the sights, sounds and smells of wilderness can attest to its wonder.
Have you ever seen the stars on a cool, clear evening without the distraction of artificial light?
Have you ever smelled a stand of fir trees after a light rain?
Have you ever heard the wing-beat of a redtailed hawk in flight 60 meters away?
Have you ever observed moose "playing tag" on the shore of a beaver pond at dusk?
Have you ever experienced large, fluffy snowflakes in the absolute silence of a windless mid-winter snow storm?
Time spent in the wilderness is amazing!

WNE opportunity #2; Income!
Though our primary focus is preserving open space, WNE members realize that many “green” economic opportunities can be derived from our unique settings. Whether you are a teacher, researcher, “green” engineer/product developer or have a skill that provides value to our members and mission, consider exploring the possibilities with us!
WNE opportunity #3; Support!
Sometimes, you participate in a program like this simply because the vision “feels right”. Through its memberships, WNE provides real, tangible results. If you happen to agree with our mission and have a desire to join our efforts, either by volunteering or providing “economic” support (partnerships, sponsorships, grants or donations), please contact us with your ideas!
