Help Protect the Granite Chief Wilderness
We are citizens that believe in the Wilderness Act and its purpose of protecting certain lands in their natural and pristine condition for all people now and for future generations.
The Granite Chief Wilderness Area, near Lake Tahoe, was designated by Congress in 1984 as a national treasure worthy of permanent protection from any development.
Now, 30 years later, this Wilderness is threatened by a proposed private equity-funded gondola that would cut through a part of the Wilderness Boundary . The human, animal, and ecological impacts of this gondola would result in the destruction of the very resources that the Wilderness designation set out to protect.
We are building a grassroots campaign to raise awareness of this threat, form a legal team to construct a strong defense of the area, and create coalitions with organizations advocating for wilderness and forest protection, high country hiking, habitat conservation, federal land management, and related issues.
Please join us and support this effort to protect the Granite Chief Wilderness!
