"We do not inherit the earth from our parents — we borrow it from our children." - Wendell Berry

American wilderness does not exist accidentally. Our pristine forests, our wild-flowing rivers, and our lush wetlands exist because determined people stood up to protect those places.

They did it not only for themselves, but for those who would come after them. They did it for us. Now it’s our turn.

The coming years will be incredibly challenging for our wildlands.  It is our Advocates for Wilderness who provide the leadership support essential to the critical work that lies ahead.

And thanks to a generous individual, who like you, is committed to our public lands, every tax-deductible gift made before midnight on Dec. 31 will be MATCHED up to $1,000,000!

Our wild needs you now more than ever. Fortunately, there has never been a better time to give.

Please donate today and your gift will go TWICE as far.

Thank you for your exceptional generosity.
