Founded in 1935,
The Wilderness Society works to protect America's wilderness and
to develop a nation-wide network of wild lands through public education,
scientific analysis and advocacy. Our goal is to ensure that future
generations will enjoy the clean air and water, wildlife, beauty
and opportunities for recreation and renewal that pristine forests,
deserts and mountains provide.
You can join the growing number of Americans who believe that preserving wilderness is essential by calling 1-800-THE-WILD (1-800-843-9453) to speak with a representative of our membership services. Or, you can join online at our website -- www.wilderness.org.
