We are part of the Clearwater Basin Collaborative, a group of:
- Local officials
- Timber companies
- Native tribal members
- Motorized recreation groups
- Conservation organizations
Together, we work to resolve land management issues and restore habitat, while creating jobs for local communities.
Our projects include:
The Wilderness Society is helping lead the Selway-Middle Fork restoration project to improve 1.4 million acres of natural habitat. The Selway-Middle Fork is nationally renowned for its pristine water, native fisheries, valued big-game species and scenic vistas.
We helped develop a proposal that permanently protects 500,000 acres of Clearwater Basin land by designating the majority of this land as wilderness. The proposal also protects 177 miles of streams under the Wild and Scenic Rivers Act.
We are also helping develop a proposal to establish a National Recreation Area that protects the majority of pristine lands within the Clearwater Basin.
We are working on the Clear Creek Integrated Restoration Project to implement more ecosystem recovery projects.
