Hide Profile

The Wilderness Society was formed in 1935 by a group of people concerned with preserving America's wilderness areas. Its mission is to "Deliver to future generations an unspoiled legacy of wild places with all the precious values they hold: Biological diversity, clean air and water, towering forests, rushing rivers, and sage-sweet, silent deserts." It accomplishes this mission through "Scientific expertise, analysis and bold advocacy at the highest levels to save, protect and restore America's wilderness areas."
