How to Participate
Dear Wyoming Community Member:
Wild places in Wyoming play a significant role in our quality of life and the sustainability of our local communities. Our public lands not only support abundant recreation, but drive the economic vitality of our communities by supporting a high quality workforce, attracting new businesses and creating a sustainable economy. As a vital part of the business community, we urge you to support the designation of Rock Creek as Wilderness.
Each day more and more of our wild places are permanently lost. While resource development is undeniably important to our state, some places are simply too special to develop. Right now, we have the opportunity to ensure that this 34,000 acre roadless area recommended for wilderness designation by the U.S. Forest Service will continue to provide critical wildlife habitat, pristine landscapes and abundant recreation for the enjoyment of future generations.
Over the past few years, representatives from the Wyoming Wilderness Association (WWA) have been laying the groundwork for this conservation campaign, working closely with the Forest Service, elected officials and community stakeholders to preserve the inherent beauty and integrity of this undeveloped area in the Bighorn Mountains. We are actively seeking the support of our local communities directly impacted by this wonderful area.
Currently, we are working to expand Friends of Rock Creek - a coalition of businesses, organizations and citizens that support the wilderness designation of Rock Creek. Please review the enclosed information on the benefits and values associated with the proposed Rock Creek wilderness area. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns you might have. Thanks for your support; with your help we will preserve our wild heritage for generations to come!

Your help is needed to preserve Rock Creek proposed wilderness. Rock Creek can only become safe from development with Congressional designation of Wilderness.
Wyoming’s delegation must be persuaded to act by hearing from a broad constituency of Wyoming and beyond!
