The Wildlander logo includes the pick-head axe, the pulaski, the police baton, the ice axe and the stethoscope superimposed over the Colorado flag, symbolizing teamwork between structural firefighters, wildland firefighters, law enforcement, search and rescue and emergency medical providers. We are united to honor those brave wanderers who come from all over the country and have sacrificed to protect our beautiful state. Not intending to leave anyone out, but not room for more tools. If you are a wildland responder, you know who you are.

Wildland Firefighter Foundation is a national organization that provides a safety net for the wildland fire community. A portion of your registration will go directly to this organization. Please also consider making a direct donation or becoming a member of the 52 Club, by donating a “buck a week to help a buddy”.
