Meet the team on a mission to keep our planet wild
When you think of the wild — what comes to mind?
Whether you think of the Grand Canyon or the Rocky Mountains, the wilderness is in need of our help to step up and defend it. Between developmental harms (like logging, drilling, and mining) to threats of climate change, places of wilderness are disappearing every single day.
That’s why we’re partnering with The Wilderness Society, a nonprofit that not only protects wilderness, but also inspires more people to develop deeper connections for wild places.
The Wilderness Society
Since 1935, The Wilderness Society has led the effort to permanently protect more than 100 million acres of wilderness in 44 states (that’s about the size of California)!

Imagine a forest carved with hundreds of miles of interconnected lakes and rivers. Now imagine the water suddenly flowing with toxic pollutants, contaminating everything that lies in its path. This could be the fate of the Boundary Waters. "There has never been a copper-sulfide mine that has not released contaminants, never." — @LandTawney Fortunately, @RepBettyMcCollum's new bill would #SaveThisWilderness from destructive sulfide-ore copper mining, & save these waters permanently.

The Wilderness Society works relentlessly to foster a kinder future for the nation’s shared wildlands — from fighting for legal protections of wilderness to collaborating with local communities to safeguard wild places.
Their team also educates people about the value of wild places, partners with local groups to empower more people to protect land, and guides elected officials to create environmentally-conscious policies.
Curious to see some of their projects? Check out a glimpse of some of the lands and waters they’re working to protect:
- The Owyhee Canyonlands in Idaho
- The forests in the Pacific Northwest
- The islands of the Maine Coastal Islands National Refuge preserve
