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 Public Lands Renewable Energy Development Act (S. 1407/H.R. 2663) was introduced in the 114th Congress with strong bi-partisan support in both the House and Senate. This common sense legislation promotes the responsible production of renewable energy on public lands while ensuring communities and local conservation efforts see benefits from development.
