 mtn_bike.jpgWilderness Act - In a recent push to undermine one of our most bedrock conservation laws - the Wilderness Act of 1964 - some congressional representatives are seeking to open wilderness areas up to mountain bikes, an activity specifically prohibited by the Wilderness Act. Urge your elected officials to reject any bill that dismantles the integrity of the Wilderness Act.




Public Lands - America’s 640 million acres of federal public lands are the backbone of our rich outdoor heritage. However, some extremist politicians would like to sell off YOUR public lands to the highest bidder and close off access forever. Please join us in the continued fight to keep public lands in public hands.

Wild Washoe - Act now to help gain permanent protection for the last remaining pockets of wild country in Washoe County while providing extensive economic development opportunities. Currently, we are working with the Nevada congressional delegation, local stakeholders, and Washoe County Commissioners to develop a public lands bill that includes conservation, recreation, and economic development.
