“Wilderness is not a luxury but a necessity of the human spirit” – Edward Abbey
The success of The Wilderness Land Trust is a direct result of our supporters, who recognize the absolute necessity of wilderness.
Thanks to our supporters, we acquired nearly 3,300 acres of private land during the past year to create new public access into designated wilderness, remove the threat of private development and protect vital wildlife habitat, flora and fauna. The impact of these projects reaches far beyond the acres we purchased; they affect more than 800,000 acres of wilderness overall.
These successes help ensure future generations will experience landscapes more resilient to the impacts of a changing climate, as a source of clean air and clear water, and as a safe haven for wildlife – all within a national preservation system that we are expanding.
On behalf of the entire staff and board of The Wilderness Land Trust — thank you to everyone who generously invested in our work.
