Western Wilderness Conference 2010 – April 8 – 11 
Don’t miss it!

Wilderness preservation has never been more important - or more possible. In the last 4 years, wilderness advocates have succeeded in establishing over 2 million acres of protected wilderness. Curious about what it takes to succeed on this scale and what new campaigns are moving forward right now? Come to the Western Wilderness Conference 2010 at UC Berkeley from April 8-11th 2010.

Sponsored by the California Wilderness Coalition, Sierra Club, The Wilderness Society, and numerous other organizations from all 13 western states, including Hawaii and Alaska, the Western Wilderness Conference 2010 highlights the theme of “The Role of Wild Lands in an era of Climate Change.” There’s a big emphasis on engaging young people in the effort to preserve wild places free from development. Come meet new allies and discover strategic tips to strengthen your own environmental campaign. Together we can preserve the wilderness.

Planning organizations include: Sierra Club, California Wilderness Coalition, Northwest Wilderness and Parks Conference The Wilderness Society, Great Old Broads for Wilderness, Desert Survivors, Audubon California, Tuleyome, Californians for Western Wilderness.
