Current Wilderness Campaigns
The Virginia Wilderness Committee has been instrumental in every Wilderness campaign in Virginia. Our most recent success was passage of the Virginia Ridge and Valley Act for areas in the Jefferson National Forest in 2009. The attached map shows all Virginia Wilderness and National Scenic Areas.
We are currently working on adding Wilderness and National Scenic areas in the George Washington National Forest.
