WildPlaces is dedicated to the restoration and protection of the wild and rural places of the southern Sierra Nevada. Alongside the people who live, work and play in these landscapes, we take direct action for the long term preservation, health, and sustainability of all natural resources and cultures. Perserving the world-class beauty of the Southern Sierras can only lead to a more awesome world. We invite you to take part with us.
