Friends of Plumas Wilderness is committed to keeping wild places wild through education, stewardship and advocacy. We inform people about the value of all things wild through film, events and articles. We work with federal land managers, partners and volunteers to keep protected areas wild. We advocate for the permanent protection more wild places, where people and wildlife can find refuge.
In today's chaotic world people need refuge from the pollution and noise of civilization. We need quiet places where we can experience clean air and quiet. Currently, the only refuge for human-powered winter snowsports enthusiasts on the Plumas National Forest is the Bucks Lake Wilderness. Friends of Plumas Wilerness is working with conservation partners to provide more places where you can experience the quiet of winter.
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.
