New Wilderness Legislation

In 2002 the Clark County Conservation of Public Land and Natural Resources Act added close to a half million acres of Nevada wilderness to the National Wilderness Preservation System. That same year the Big Sur Wilderness Act added 60,000 acres of Californian Wilderness.

Currently, the 108th congress is considering new bills with significant impact, such as:

  • The Alaska Rainforest Conservation Act, which would permanently safeguard the remaining important wild lands of the Tongass and Chugach National Forests to provide for hunting, fishing, recreation, tourism, and traditional subsistence activities.

  • America’s Red Rock Wilderness Act, which is a bill designating wilderness areas on 9.3 million acres of Utah BLM lands which were identified by the Utah Wilderness Coalition inventory as having wilderness qualities.
