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

The statement comes after the agency engaged in an unprecedented public outreach campaign that consisted of a series of public meetings and the formation of a public working group that resulted in the submission of hundreds of comments to the local Tres Rios field office.

The legislation would keep more trails across the nation open and accessible by expanding the use of volunteer and partner organizations and providing increased focus on a handful of priority areas around the country.

    With very few legislative days left in the 114th Congress, this bill has no chance of being adopted and would do too little to protect wild, cultural and historic lands, including the critically important Bears Ears area.
