Our Mission

Awaiting release of Teton to Snake

WWA is preparing for the release of the Teton to Snake DEIS, a project that would manipulate more than 22,500 acres to reduce wildfires. Much of this work is to occur within the Palisades WSA, impacting forest ecosystems, wildlife, air quality, and recreational opportunities in your precious wild areas. Click here to learn more.

The Bridger-Teton National Forest embodies the spirit of wild with 3.4 million acres of designated public land and 1.2 million acres preserved forever as wilderness.

WWA continues to ensure these lands are administered to protect their wild characteristics and that special places like the 135,000 acre Palisades Wilderness Study Area are given rightful inclusion in the National Wilderness Preservation System.

WWA continues to work for Wilderness designation of Rock Creek, which was recommended as Wilderness in the 2005 Forest Plan.

WWA is also taking a broader view on the forest, looking into other wild places that are in need of protection.
