The Wilderness Society works to keep this area protected for generations to come. The Nulhegan Basin needs proper refuge management and protection from unrestricted off-road vehicle use.
A diverse region of mountain peaks and bog filled valleys, the Nulhegan Basin is a refuge for lots of wildlife like songbirds and black bears. Without proper management, this unique landscape could be lost forever.
The Wilderness Society and other partners are working with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to guarantee the long term protection of the Nulhegan Basin.
Wilderness is a precious resource with many human, natural and economic benefits that we need to protect.
