Other Campaigns in the Colorado Plateau

In addition to our focus areas, the Wilderness Society works on other campaigns on the Colorado Plateau.

We work with the Bureau of Land Management to make sure that once lands are protected they stay wild. We also help guide the BLM to keep oil and gas drilling away from wild lands.

Conservation Lands

The National Landscape Conservation System has many spectacular lands in it. We work to make sure that these lands are properly managed to guarantee their wildness lasts for generations.

Oil and gas drilling

We work with the Bureau of Land Management to make sure that the wildest lands that they manage are kept off limits to oil and gas drilling. We help guide them to places that are more suitable.
