Victory for Roadless Areas!

After nearly 2 decades of legal shenanigans, the U.S. Supreme Court is upholding the Roadless Area Conservation Rule as the law of the land!

This only means that 58 million acres of some of the finest fishing and hunting areas across the country are now forever protected from road construction and other development impacts. Although roadless areas comprise only 2% of all land in the United States, they are found within over 660 of the over 2,000 major watersheds across the nation.

These are our last wild places, and they need to stay wild.
