Other campaigns in the Northern Forest

The wild places of the Northeast extend beyond the Northern Forests, and protecting them sometimes requires improving state-level policies. In addition to our work in the forests, The Wilderness Society is working on other campaigns in this region.

Coastal islands

Spreading across 50 rocky islands, the Maine Coastal National Wildlife Refuge is home to more than 320 bird species and other unique wildlife like harbor seals. The Wilderness Society is working to increase protections for some of these islands for their outstanding wilderness qualities.

Climate adaptation

Preparing wilderness and communities of the Northeast for climate change can lessen its effects and keep our wild places safe.

Renewable energy

We support energy conservation and responsible renewable energy development that reduces harmful greenhouse gas emissions while also preserving core areas that help nature adapt to climate stresses.

    This weekend, veterans from around the West will be visiting the rolling, boulder-strewn landscape of the Dragoon Mountains south of Tucson to participate in a writing workshop that will guide them on skills needed to create narratives of fiction, non-fiction, or poetry that is informed both by their service experiences and the natural environment.
