Wyoming Wilderness Association
The Wyoming Wilderness Association (WWA) is a non-governmental, not-for-profit organization first created in 1979 by a group of wilderness advocates and outdoors people who envisioned the Wyoming Wilderness Act.
In 1984, the passage of the Wyoming Wilderness Act brought to all Americans the permanent protection of an additional 1.1 million acres of ecologically diverse, wild country.
The WWA worked hard in the 1970’s and 80’s to educate and train activists for the ultimate passage of the Wyoming Wilderness Act of 1984. Still today, the Wyoming Wilderness Association is working to protect our public wild lands to ensure a future of wild places for people and wildlife.
In 2003, the WWA was reborn with a new opportunity to protect additional wild watersheds, intact ecosystems, old growth forests, important wildlife habitat, and wildlife migration corridors - wild landscapes that truly deserve lasting protection as Wilderness. As of 2009, WWA’s membership has grown to over 500 members.
