Lost Coast Wilderness
275,000 acres protected

The California Wild Heritage Campaign used two Conservation Alliance grants to help secure Wilderness protection for 275,000 acres of federal land on California’s North Coast. This effort protects the Lost Coast, the longest undeveloped stretch of coastline in the Lower 48. The campaign also won Wild and Scenic River status for 21 miles of the Black Butte River.
