We work to protect America's last unspoiled, public wildlands before they're gone forever. Join us in the cause!
Since 1935, we’ve been protecting wilderness and inspiring Americans to care for our wild places. The Wilderness Society has led the charge to protect 111 million acres of wilderness since our founding and we’ve directly contributed to the passage of almost every major conservation law while fighting hard against attempts to undermine them. We’re humbled by how much work is still left to do, but incredibly proud of our tradition.
We love, respect and are part of the natural world. We believe clean air and water and access to nature are basic rights. We strive for equity and justice in everything we do and seek to reflect the many communities with whom we work. We take bold action informed by sound science to protect and defend nature for all. We collaborate across generations to build a healthier, sustainable future.
