Overview
This renewal grant to the Wilderness Society would support its efforts to secure lasting protection for unroaded, ecologically important public land. These efforts include eliminating most cross-country off-road vehicle use and establishing policies that reduce the extent and impact of fossil energy development, while promoting the appropriate siting of renewable energy projects on public land. To achieve these goals, the Society would develop and apply scientific, legal, and policy analysis tools; provide advice and support to a broad array of organizations working toward similar goals; and educate policymakers and the press.
