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.’

    More than 50 million acres of Bureau of Land Management Land could include more conservation measures to help sage-grouse, based on plans announced by Interior Secretary Sally Jewell today in Cheyenne, Wyoming.  The plan released for Idaho is meant to pair the protection of sage-grouse habitat with other multiple use management of public lands. If implemented correctly, this plan can create more certainty for Idaho ranchers while also making a significant commitment to conserve sage-grouse habitat.

    The future of more than 50 million acres of Bureau of Land Management Land could include more conservation measures based on plans announced by Interior Secretary Sally Jewell today.  When adopted and implemented, the federal plans for managing the conservation of Greater Sage-Grouse could complement the broad number of efforts already underway across the West and highlight a commitment to conservation that is needed from the Interior Department.

    Citing some of “the most beautiful and iconic landscapes on earth” in Teton County’s backyard, the board of commissioners Tuesday morning unanimously passed a resolution that “opposes any and all efforts by the State of Wyoming to obtain the wholesale transfer of federal lands in Wyoming” to the state. In January, Sweetwater County filed a letter with the state legislature stating similar opposition to measures that would turn over federal public lands—such as parks, wilderness, and national forests—to state jurisdiction and management.
