2022 Spring Newsletter – Celebrating Three Decades of Protecting Wilderness
Happy 30th birthday. Close your eyes and make a wish.
If you dream of landscapes where wildlife are free to roam, rivers and streams run cold and clear, and the opportunity for solitude amongst breathtaking beauty abounds, The Wilderness Land Trust can help make those dreams come true.
It’s been 30 years since The Wilderness Land Trust was established to counter the threat of commercial, residential and private development in the heart of our nation’s wildest places. During this time, our projects have expanded in scope and scale, initially focused on wilderness areas near Aspen, Colorado and now stretching from Alaska to Arizona.
Today, we have permanently protected more than 55,000 acres and placed 522 parcels of formerly private land into public ownership—a positive impact on more than 17 million acres of federally designated wilderness across the American west.
Please enjoy details of our latest projects and partnerships in our Spring Newsletter. It features a special 30th anniversary insert that takes you on a joyful journey on some of the places we have protected together.
We remain most grateful for the opportunity to partner with you—our generous donors, landowners, agency staff and project partners—to make a meaningful difference in the world and preserve its unique beauty and biodiversity for future generations.
Please feel free to share this newsletter with family, friends or colleagues you think may be interested in supporting our good work. We welcome their involvement and thank you for your help and generosity in spreading the word.
