This remarkable area, which houses centuries-old conifer forests and a host of endangered species, has been proposed for Wilderness since the 1980s, but has never received the protection it deserves.

Representative Peter DeFazio (D-OR) and Senators Ron Wyden (D-OR) and Jeff Merkley (D-OR) continue to champion the respective bills through Congress. For more information click here.
