Oregon's Roadless Wildlands
Highlights Oregon Wild's work to safeguard our remaining unspoiled forests and wild areas by reinstating the 2001 Roadless Area Conservation Rule.
Update: The Supreme Court rejects final mining industry appeal after a lower Court Overturned the Final Bush-era legal challenge to the Roadless Rule ending a decade of unnecessary conflict
Imagine the most rugged, remote, and unspoiled landscape in Oregon. A place where old-growth trees still tower above the land, where elk and other wildlife find vast areas of pristine, high-quality habitat. A place where cold, clean streams still run free and provide a home for rainbow trout and other native fish.
These kinds of wild, roadless lands are becoming harder and harder to find in Oregon. With over half of our National Forests already open to mining, logging, and other destructive development, we owe it to future generations to save what's left. For over three decades, Oregon Wild has been working to do just that.
