CALIFORNIA WILDERNESS COALITION
Preserving our wild spaces and rivers also preserves
the health of our economy and our communities.

Our campaigns to protect California's wild spaces:

Northwest California

CalWild is working protect up to 405,000 acres of wilderness and important wild rivers like the upper South Fork Trinity River, the Little South Fork Elk River, the Mattole River and its tributaries, and Olema Creek in the Point Reyes National Seashore.

Central Coast

Central CoastThe Central Coast Heritage 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 awe-inspiring Channel Islands.
