Help us keep the WILD in the "Wild West"
This age specific program, created by a former WWA YAW student, will teach your children the values of wilderness and engage them in exploring the outdoors. With a curriculum that can be incorporated into a classroom setting or in your very own home, you will INSPIRE yourself and others to LEARN ABOUT and PROTECT the wild places that surround you.
Your donation to the Wyoming Wilderness Association will ensure that our country's last frontier will remain WILD for generations to come.
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.
There are over 18 million acres of public lands administered by the U.S. Bureau of Land Management (BLM) in Wyoming.
WWA is working to ensure that these badlands, dune fields, rock outcrops, sagebrush communities, alkali flats and other special environments are carefully managed.
The Shoshone National Forest (SNF) is the countries first national forest and home to some of Wyoming's most WILD landscapes.
WWA is working to protects the Shoshone's roadless lands through the upcoming Travel Management Plan (TMP).
