    • @rei and @superfeet joined @conservationalliance, @amerwhitewater and @mountaineersorg for a meeting with Senator Maria Cantwell to say thank you for her leadership on LWCF. She is truly one of the champions working hard to protect our favorite wild places!
    • The proposed 350,000-acre Gold Butte National Monument would protect rich archaeological treasures and outstanding backcountry recreational opportunities in Southeast Nevada.  Gold Butte is located between the Grand Canyon Parashant National Monument, Arizona, and Lake Mead National Recreation Area, just south of the City of Mesquite. We are proud to fund Friends of Nevada Wilderness and Friends of Gold Butte for their effort to protect Gold Butte before President Obama leaves office in January, 2017.

    • Did you know there is a new rule that directs five national forests in the Northern Sierra to develop balanced winter-specific management plans? This means critical wildlife habitat and high-value human-powered winter recreation landscapes across the Northern Sierra will be permanently protected. We are proud to fund @winterwildlands for their work on this important project. #Tahoe #SierraNevada #WWA Photo Credit Sam Roberts
    • We are pleased to award 20 organizations with funding to support their efforts to protect our favorite wild places. These grants, totaling $790,000, are made possible by 190 Conservation Alliance member companies who care passionately about protecting the places we play.
