Every year, new and existing designation campaigns emerge to protect America’s treasured wildlands.

Every Congress — during its two-year term — has the opportunity to protect precious wildlands for future generations. At Wilderness, we work with people from all walks of life to achieve wilderness protection through on-the-ground campaigns and the passage of bills in Congress.
