Restore Wilderness in Olympic National Park

Wilderness Watch is supporting a National Park Service (NPS) decision to remove the dilapidated Enchanted Valley Chalet in the Olympic Wilderness in Washington. The structure stands in the path of the East Fork Quinault River, and its eventual demise threatens to flood the wild river with brick, metal, wood, and other debris. The Park Service should allow natural conditions to be restored to the Wilderness.

We're Suing to Stop Cruel Hunting Practices on National Preserves in Alaska

E-Bike rules threaten public lands, wildlife, and Wilderness

Wilderness Watch is opposing Bureau of Land Management (BLM), National Park Service (NPS), and Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) rulemaking to open up our federal public lands to electric bikes, or e-bikes. This means that all trails open to bikes will now be open to motorized bikes, and although individual managers can close individual trails to e-bike use, most will be loathe to do so. These rulemaking efforts are being made to implement Secretary of Interior David Bernhardt’s Secretarial Order…

One of the East's largest Wildernesses threatened by massive strip mine
