A stillness that amplifies the wings of a hummingbird. Clean mountain air and crystal clear water. Solitude and beauty that nurtures the soul. Wilderness is where you experience the profound beauty of our natural world.

Hundreds of thousands of acres within designated wilderness are vulnerable to development, mining, and logging. Should even one acre be developed, it would have a devastating effect on the surrounding wilderness. We are dedicated to acquiring private land and transferring it to public ownership to secure the surrounding wilderness.
