Help Protect California

We’ve been successfully winning new wilderness protection across California, while also defending our public wild lands for future generations.

With the help of people like you, we've protected more than one million acres of California wilderness since 2001, and we've ensured that lands with protections are managed wisely. The work continues to protect more.
