Protecting
Wild Places

Friends of Plumas Wilderness is working to permanently protect wild places like the Middle Fork of the Feather River, Mill Creek, Heart Lake and Spencer Meadows. We are partnering with Feather River College, Plumas National Forest and The Wilderness Society to identify areas that qualify for Wilderness and Wild & Scenic River designation. Our partners will be hiring two student interns to complete local inventories of wild areas.

Saving Winter Wildlands

Friends of Plumas Wilderness has been working closely with Snowlands Network and Winter Wildlands Alliance to enhance quiet winter recreation opportunities on the Lassen, Plumas and Tahoe National Forests. Because of our objections, National Forests in the Northern Sierra are required to develop alternatives that provide more opportunities for quiet winter sports.

Learn More

Give away our public lands for free? That is exactly what the 115th Congress proposes to do. On their first day in session, the House of Representatives made it easier to transfer public lands, for free! Public land transfers can now be treated as ‘budget neutral.’ This budgetary maneuver is designed to make it look like giving away public land would cost nothing. But, public lands are a large source of government revenue, second only to taxes.
