Greater Yellowstone

There are so few large, nearly intact networks of wildlands left on earth. Greater Yellowstone is one of the last.

Greater Yellowstone is defined by blue-ribbon trout streams, grizzly bears and the longest wildlife migration corridor in the continental United States. But these treasures are now threatened by expanding energy development pressures and growing populations.

At Wilderness, we're working to protect this iconic American wildland from these threats and preserve the landscape's natural and human benefits.

Stories from Greater Yellowstone

Greater Yellowstone is one of the most recognized wildlands in America, but it is best discovered through the eyes of local residents whose lives are rooted in the land.

At Wilderness, our work within Greater Yellowstone is rooted in several focal wildlands that need protection.

    On Wednesday, The Wilderness Society presented lifetime conservation achievement awards to Representatives George Miller, Jim Moran and Rush Holt, who collectively represent 80 years of support for conservation of some of America’s most stunning landscapes and protection of the country’s clean air and water.  All three members of Congress have announced their plans to retire at the end of the current session.
