Giving Tuesday is November 30, 2021

GivingTuesday, a Global Day of Giving, is tomorrow. Please help us raise $30,000 to protect Wilderness in 2022 and beyond!

Wilderness is one of the things that America got right and that has been emulated around the world. Yet just as it took a citizen movement to create our country’s 111 million-acre wilderness system, it takes engaged citizens, ever vigilant, to ensure it remains a wild and protected home for wildlife and a place for present and future generations to reconnect with our wild selves.

Protecting Wilderness is always a challenge, but in 2021, we've collectively turned back numerous destructive and intrusive threats to some of our premier wilderness lands.

Together, we:

  • stopped a massive project to poison 67 miles of streams and three lakes in the Scapegoat Wilderness, part of an ill-conceived proposal aimed at replacing one type of fish with another in what were historically fishless waters.
  • kept native wildlife from being driven from their homes by keeping long-vacant grazing allotments in the Absaroka-Beartooth and other Wildernesses closed to domestic cows and sheep.
  • ensured that natural processes continue to shape the Palisades Wilderness Study Area by shutting down a plan to burn thousands of acres of native vegetation.
  • prevented road survey work in the wildlife-rich and internationally significant Izembek Wilderness.
  • preserved natural quiet in America’s first Wilderness—the Gila—and seven other Wildernesses by defeating a plan to expand F-16 fighter jet overflights.

Your gift to Wilderness Watch during GivingTuesday supports our work to protect Wilderness—the idea, the spirit, the place, and its wild inhabitants. All first-time donations will be matched up to $10,000 by wilderness advocate Bob J. Weggel. 

Please help us raise $30,000 on GivingTuesday. We couldn’t do this important work without you!

Thank you!

For the wild,
George, Dana, Kevin, Dawn, and Brett
