Other Places We Work

In addition to our seven landscapes, we work to protect wilderness in New Mexico, Idaho and Greater Yellowstone.

We work in these areas to designate wilderness and monuments, restore and protect national forests and to ensure wildlands remain protected for generations to come.

Greater Yellowstone

Greater Yellowstone is one of the last large, intact networks of wildlands in the United States. But all of its natural treasures are threatened by expanding energy development and growing populations. 

Idaho

Idaho is home to some of the most rugged and remote wildlands in the United States. The state's diverse wildlife and plant species are among the rarest in the American west.

Nevada

Nevada’s public lands provide endless opportunities to explore what is left of the wild west. The state boasts unique desert landscapes that are home to plants and animals not found elsewhere on the planet.

 

  • Some of the most important climate and energy achievements of the last eight years—including many that were Wilderness Society priorities—will be on the chopping block the moment President-elect Trump settles into the Oval Office. It will be more important than ever to stand up and let our lawmakers know what is important to us.

  • Thank you to the tens of thousands of you who responded to our requests to sign your name to a letter urging the administration to take this step. This is your victory!

  • Trump has picked a leading climate denier, Myron Ebell, to lead the transition team at the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Ebell is also said to be in contention to head the agency itself. On the campaign trail, Trump said he may "cut" the EPA, but giving Ebell any authority over it may be just as bad.
