The Wildland Trekking Company was born from a passion for wild and beautiful land. We promote conservation and protection of the environment not from a sense of duty or obligation, but from a joy that stems from the privilege we've had in experiencing some fantastic landscapes. We're attempting to do our part by partnering with the following organizations that we strongly believe in.
If you're interested in helping protect one of the national parks we operate in, we heartily recommend becoming a member of an appropriate organization below.
The Greater Yellowstone Coalition (GYC) was founded in 1983 on a simple premise: An ecosystem will remain healthy and wild only if it is kept whole. Since that time, they have emerged as America's Voice for the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem and are extremely active in supporting the biological integrity of this amazing region.
We support GYC by donating thousands of dollars annually and running educational adventure trips that raise money to fund their efforts.
Grand Canyon Association (GCA) is the official nonprofit partner of Grand Canyon National Park, raising private funds to benefit Grand Canyon National Park, operating retail shops and visitor centers within the park, and providing educational classes and programs about the natural and cultural history of the region.

Wildhorse Ranch Rescue was started in 1995 by Kim Meagher (pronounced Ma-her), an employee of Intel Corporation. She and her two young children, Nick and McKay, accidentally found out about the plight of homeless horses in the United States. They rescued horses privately from 1995 until 2000. But even with their efforts, they could not save very many horses. Kim applied for, and received non-profit status for Wildhorse Ranch Rescue (WRR) and with the help of many people, WRR has been able to help save many horses from death, abuse and neglect.
We make significant annual donations to WHRR to assist with helping and rescuing horses in Northern Arizona.
