Help Protect the North Cascades

In the North Cascades, jagged mountain peaks mix with alpine lakes, glaciers and abundant wateralls. Some of the most pristine and wondrous wildlands exist here.

Yet, the North Cascades are increasingly threatened by climate change and development.

The Wilderness Society is working across the North Cascades to:

  • Enhance access to recreation
  • Protect remaining wild places
  • Use our natural resources more wisely

    Today, the House Natural Resources Committee will begin marking up the Public Land Renewable Energy Development Act of 2017 (H.R. 825).

    The bipartisan legislation would create priority areas for renewable energy development on public lands, ensuring more certainty and efficiency for projects, while limiting environmental and community impacts. The bill would also create a conservation fund to reinvest revenue from renewable energy projects back into affected communities, as well as into fish and wildlife habitat conservation and recreation on public lands.

    By passing H.R. 218 today, the U.S. House of Representatives set a dangerous precedent, approving construction of a destructive, unnecessary road through protected wilderness in the vital Izembek National Wildlife Refuge in the Alaska Peninsula.  

    This bill undermines bedrock conservation laws including the 1964 Wilderness Act, which prevents road building in designated wilderness, and the National Environmental Policy Act, which guarantees a process for environmental review of federal decisions, including participation by citizens and other stakeholders.
