In 2005, after receiving more than
19,000 comments urging for wilderness protection for Rock Creek, the Bighorn
National Forest recommended the area for wilderness in the Final Forest Plan
Revision. The Wyoming Wilderness Association has been working on building
grassroots support and understanding about the values and beauty of this wild
area on the east face of the Big Horn Mountains in north central Wyoming.
Rock Creek would be the first NEW wilderness area in Wyoming since the
passage of the Wyoming Wilderness Act in 1984.
NOW is the time to urge our members of Congress to introduce legislation for the Rock Creek addition to the
Cloud Peak Wilderness!

Your help is needed to preserve Rock Creek proposed wilderness, which the Bighorn National Forest recommended in its 2005 forest plan. Rock Creek can only become Wilderness through Congressional designation.
Wyoming’s delegation must be persuaded to act by hearing from a broad constituency of Wyoming and beyond!
