Sierra Nevada is known for its regal granite spires, sapphire lakes and venerable forests. It is home to Yosemite, Sequoia and other popular destinations.

But many of its wild lands still need permanent protection. The Wilderness Society works towards preservation that would secure this American national treasure and outdoor legacy for generations.

Assuring the Sierra Nevada’s future legacy

The Sierra Nevada is one of America’s iconic wild lands. Yet many sections of the Sierra still need permanent protection. 

We are working on federal funding to expand the Sierra’s public land holdings. These land purchases would help this region avoid development and would conserve the most critical wild lands.
