Establishing, Expanding, and Protecting Wilderness Areas

Why It Matters:

Federal land designation as Wilderness and Park is the gold standard of ecosystem protection, precluding most damaging industrial and commercial exploitation.

Since 1957, NCCC has been instrumental in establishing North Cascades National Park and surrounding wilderness areas, and now seeks to complete the portrait by legislatively securing unprotected roadless areas, and rehabilitating logged-over land.
