Congress is the midst of waging unprecedented attacks on conservation this year. But fortunately there are still some lawmakers who stand by American values and support protecting wilderness. This week is Great Outdoors America Week and roughly 200 advocates are in Washington pressing all members of Congress to do more to protect our natural heritage.
As someone who loves wilderness, you can take part in this important effort too!
