Our founding members are a group of concerned outdoor enthusiasts.  We're climbing guides, writers, naturalists, and photographers from Coos and Carroll Counties.  The platform on which we created Keep the Whites Wild is volunteer based, mobile, conservation purposed, actionable, and accountable.  Our board members are all volunteers. We welcome questions and volunteerism.
