Our Mission

The Wyoming Wilderness Association works to protect Wyoming's public wild lands. Through public education, funding events and our passion for our heritage, we gain YOUR support for keeping Wyoming wild.


Become a member and supporter of the Wyoming Wilderness Association!

Home to America's wildest country in the lower 48 states, Wyoming's public wild lands consist of deserts, canyons and high plains full of ecological diversity.

It is our goal to protect these areas from threatening developments for the enjoyment of generations to come.

YOUR donation will help keep Wyoming wild and will preserve YOUR history and heritage in the last frontier.


In March 2015, Washington passed Senate Amendment 838 in a 51-49 vote to set up a funding reserve to facilitate the transfer of federal public lands including national forests, wilderness areas and wildlife preserves to the states.

Once management is transferred to the states, these lands are in danger of being sold to the highest bidder for oil and gas operations, mining, logging and other destructive developments, locking you OUT from world class hunting, fishing, hiking and wildlife viewing opportunities.

As a supporter of the wild, we ask you to take a stand and protect your public lands from these threats. Sign the petition and tell your elected officials why these places matter to YOU!

Shoshone National Forest

Bridger-Teton National Forest

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).

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.

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.

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.

Your donation to the Wyoming Wilderness Association will ensure that our country's last frontier will remain WILD for generations to come.

This age specific program, created by a past 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 LEARN, PROTECT and INSPIRE not only yourself but also the wild places and people that surround you.
