Campaign for America's Wilderness

Celebrating its six-year anniversary, the Campaign for America's Wilderness works to protect the nation's remaining wild lands to ensure an enduring legacy of wilderness for future generations. CAW joins with state and local partners to raise public awareness of special wild lands and to secure dependable, permanent protection for wild lands administered by the U.S. Forest Service, the Bureau of Land Management and other federal agencies. CAW's work includes campaign planning and implementation, strategic communications and public education initiatives, grassroots organizing, electronic outreach, leadership training and advocacy.

Campaign for America's Wilderness was a Brainerd Foundation grantee from 2002 to 2009.
