Martha Christensen 

(1932-2017)

     Wildland advocates in Wyoming lost a long-time supporter on March 19th when Martha Christensen passed away in Madison, Wisconsin.  She was 85 and had been a professor at the University of Wyoming for 26 years.  WWA Governing Council member Dennis Knight noted, "Martha was an avid outdoors person, backpacking into wilderness areas at every opportunity.  She was admired for her tenacity in evaluating the decisions of public land managers. In her many letters to the editor she asked for the protection of those few roadless areas that remain in our national forests.”  

    For many years Martha worked with WWA founder, and current Governing Council member, Bart Koehler, and later WWA Executive Director Liz Howell, and she was featured in two chapters of WWA’s book, Ahead of Their Time: Wyoming Voices for Wilderness. Copies of this book are available from our Sheridan office.  An obituary for Martha can be accessed at http://uwbotany.blogspot.com.

Help us continue to show strong public opposition to the agenda to seize our national forests & other public lands

Your Presence is needed in Cheyenne - Wednesday, December 14th

What?  A sub-committee of the legislature's Select Federal Natural Resource committee is holding a public hearing on a constitutional amendment to pave the way for state takeover

 of our public lands.

When?  Wednesday, December 14th, 2 - 5 p.m.

Where?  Jonah Business Center, Rm. L-54; 3001 E. Pershing Blvd., Cheyenne, WY.

Why?  This bill continues the extremist agenda to promote public land transfer to the state.  Contrary to what the proponents say, this draft legislation leaves the door wide open for sale of our public lands and loss of public access.

Who?  You! We need people to attend this meeting and speak out against this land grab agenda.

Free and Open to the Public:
