To keep the Sierra Nevada forests wild, The Wilderness Society supports management plans that increase and restore habitat, protect potential wilderness and consider climate change.

Both wise future management and on-the-ground restoration projects ensure that the Sierra Nevada stays wild. The Wilderness Society’s California team is focused on both of these goals and is working with the Forest Service and local partners to accomplish this.

Forest planning

The Wilderness Society is working with the US Forest Service to improve their national forest management plans. Our initial focus will be on the Sierra, Inyo and Sequoia national forests. Our goals are to:

  • Augment wildlife habitats.
  • Protect potential wilderness.
  • Diminish severe wildfire threats.
  • Factor in climate change.
