Favorites on Friday: The Wilderness Land Trust Reports Success

Earlier this year, The Wilderness Land Trust was awarded a grant for their Castle Crags Wilderness Acquisition Campaign, to permanently protect and transfer to public ownership the 1,257 acres of private land currently blocking direct public access from I-5 to the climbing and backpacking within the 12,232-acre Castle Crags Wilderness Area.  

While we were attending the Outdoor Retailer Show, we received excellent news that the acquisition campaign had been successful.  1,257 acres of private land have been purchased and will be transferred to the Forest Service, adding additional acreage to the Castle Crags Wilderness and providing climbing access from the I-5 freeway.
