CALIFORNIA WILDERNESS COALITION
Preserving our wild spaces and rivers sustains the health of our economy and our communities

Fire Mosaic Bandana & Heyday Book Bundles

With birds as guides, Fire Mosaic depicts four essential phases of a California landscape, starting and ending with fire. The art was created by Robin Lee Carlson, author of The Cold Canyon Fire Journals, an illustrated journey through one fire-swept ecosystem that unearths revelations about nature’s necessary and nourishing fire cycles. Your donation empowers a public land advocacy nonprofit, a literary nonprofit, and an ecologist-artist to continue documenting, advocating for, and ultimately supporting public lands and all the lives that thrive there.

Our campaigns to protect California's wild spaces:

Central Coast

Central CoastThe Central Coast Heritage Protection Act is the product of years of discussion and negotiation, led by Representative Carbajal, involving business leaders, conservationists, elected officials, ranchers, mountain bikers, and other stakeholders interested in the use and well-being of these iconic lands. Included in the proposed legislation are iconic oak woodlands and chaparral-draped coastal mountains in the Los Padres National Forest and the Carrizo Plain National Monument.

Wild & Scenic Rivers

Wild & Scenic RiversMuch like our incredibly diverse landscapes, California’s wildest rivers range from the seasonal flows of the Amargosa River in the Mojave Desert to the mighty Klamath River watershed that cuts across northern California. CalWild has been involved in the protection of virtually every National Wild & Scenic River in California since 1984. With over 2,000 miles already designated, we’re aiming to grow that inventory to 6,000 miles by 2028.
