There is a 'Sentinel Peak' in 11 states. These peaks keep watch over our wilderness.  So do we.  Help us continue to be the sentinel of our wilderness, Keeping Wilderness Wild. A generous supporter will match your gift, dollar for dollar, up  $100,000 each year!  Every acre we acquire, when woven into the fabric of the wilderness, has preserved 109 million acres of irreplaceable wilderness that surrounds it. Please Invest in Keeping Wilderness Wild.  Keep us on station, protecting the fabric of wilderness we have all worked so hard to create.

"The Wilderness Land Trust is on station, every day, to protect our National Wilderness Preservation System.  We don’t need to be big to do this.  We do not want to be grand.  But we have to be there.  Available - when private property, owned within lands where “man is just a visitor and shall not remain” go up for sale so that these holes in the fabric of our wilderness can be acquired and woven into it, not sold to yet another private landowner who will spend another generation developing private dreams within what we’ve spent more than two generations weaving into a public vision of wilderness."


Reid Haughey


Past President,
