Their Mission Statement

CWC is the only organization dedicated to protecting and restoring California's wild places and native biodiversity on a statewide level.

Summary of Impact

Since 1976, we have empowered local communities and conservationists to be the voice for wild California. Recent Accomplishments       Worked closely with Senator Feinstein's office and local stakeholders to introduce a bill that will protect our beautiful California desert.  The California Desert Protection Act (CDPA) of 2010, introduced by Senator Dianne Feinstein on December 21, 2009, will protect 1.6 million acres of beautiful and threatened desert landscapes.  Led grassroots organizing efforts to build support for the Beauty Mountain and Agua Tibia Wilderness Act of 2009. Introduced by Representative Darrell Issa on December 14, 2009, the bill will add over 7,796 acres to the existing Agua Tibia Wilderness and will expand the Beauty Mountain Wilderness by an additional 13,635 acres.   Through our Citizens' Wilderness Inventory, we were able to make the argument that there are  wilderness worthy candidates in the California desert, and they should not be open to renewable energy development.  The Department of Interior then dropped these areas from inclusion in their solar study zones.  Renewable energy is needed but projects should be sited appropriately and not cause harm to our fragile desert ecosystem.   Stopped the Rattlesnake timber sale that threatened the Chinquapin Proposed Wilderness and the South Fork Trinity Proposed Wilderness in Shasta-Trinity National Forest   Won a lawsuit with the Forest Service that requires  increased protection  of nearly 40 Southern California wild spaces.   Spearheaded efforts to pass the California Desert & Mountain Heritage Act, Sequoia-Kings Canyon National Park Wilderness Act, and Eastern Sierra & Northern San Gabriel Wild Heritage Act. Signed into law by President Obama on March 30th, 2009 as part of the Omnibus Public Land Management Act of 2009, these bills protected more than 700,000 acres of new wilderness and 104 miles of Wild & Scenic Rivers in California.   Worked with the U.S. Forest Service to restore abandoned roads and organize volunteer stewardship projects in the Yuki, Sanhedrin, and Snow Mountain Wilderness Areas in the Mendocino National Forest.
