We Keep the Promise of Wilderness – by acquiring and transferring private lands to public ownership to complete designated and proposed wilderness areas, or directly protect wilderness values.
The 1964 Wilderness Act created a globally unique system of 765 wilderness areas where “man is a visitor that does not remain.” The National Wilderness Preservation System is a wildlife safe-haven for threatened and endangered species, a reservoir for clean air and water in a rapidly changing climate, a refuge from the noise and pace of cities, and an opportunity to experience the profound beauty of nature.
