Greater Yellowstone Focus Areas

Greater Yellowstone is an iconic remnant of the American wildlands that once stretched from coast to coast. It is a window to our wild heritage and a wildland in great need of protection.

Greater Yellowstone is one of the last remaining intact wildlands in the United States and the world. At Wilderness, we're working to keep it protected for many years to come by fending off over-development and other threats.

Wyoming Range

Our work in the Wyoming Range protects the clean air and water, critical wildlife habitat and year-round recreation activities that these wild lands offer.

Shoshone National Forest

The Shoshone is the nation’s first national forest and one of the least developed. Preventing drilling and new roads will preserve its unique wild character.

Gallatin Range

The Gallatin Range provides clean water for nearby towns, a refuge for wildlife and world-class hunting, fishing and recreation. We work to ensure that it isn’t ‘loved to death.’

The statement comes after the agency engaged in an unprecedented public outreach campaign that consisted of a series of public meetings and the formation of a public working group that resulted in the submission of hundreds of comments to the local Tres Rios field office.

    Today the House of Representatives approved H.R. 845, the National Forest System Trails Stewardship Act by Representatives Cynthia Lummis (R-WY) and Tim Walz (D-MN). The legislation would keep more trails across the nation open and accessible by expanding the use of volunteer and partner organizations and providing increased focus on a handful of priority areas around the country.

    With very few legislative days left in the 114th Congress, this bill has no chance of being adopted and would do too little to protect wild, cultural and historic lands, including the critically important Bears Ears area.
