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.

  • Comments from The Wilderness Society, Natural Resources Defense Council, and others submitted to the Bureau of Land Management regarding proposed rules for leasing land for wind and solar energy projects on federal lands. 

  • The 114th Congress faces a multitude of environmental challenges. The Wilderness Society is working the halls of power to make sure that America's wild places are part of the legislative agenda, and to make sure that lawmakers and staff are hearing both sides of the issues.

  • The Wilderness Society submitted official comments on the draft Desert Renewable Energy Conservation plan that was proposed early in the fall of 2014. The comment period allowed for broad public participation in determining the future of balancing conservation and recreation with renewable energy development.

    The following is an excerpt from our comments submitted on February 22, 2015. The full comment document is available for download.
