Other Campaigns in the Southern Appalachians

The Southern Appalachians are among the most iconic wild places in America. At Wilderness, we're working to keep them wild.

We work with local residents and partners to maintain hiking and biking trails in the wilderness areas in the Southern Appalachians. We’re also working with private landowners to help conserve interconnected forests on public and private lands.

Our work on the ground helps to keep the forests and wilderness areas of the Southern Appalachians accessible, while still protecting their wild aspects.
