The Wilderness Society understands how valuable the “amber waves of grain” and “purple mountains majesty” are to our ¬†country, and they are dedicated to protecting them. As the leading conservation organization in America, the Wilderness Society works to protect America’s land, and they strive to create an “American land ethic” in which Americans appreciate and fight to preserve the natural wonders around us.

The Wilderness Society specializes in preserving national parks, national forests, and wildlife refuges. The organization has been a driving force behind much of the last century’s conservation legislation in America, and they continue to push the expansion of many national parks and protected lands.
