In this second installment of a series of blog posts following wildways trekker John Davis along the proposed connection between Algonquin Provincial Park to Adirondack Park (A2A), John explores the wild beauty of the trail that Alice the Moose pioneered nearly a decade and a half ago. Finally, in Wellesley Island State Park, John joins A2A friends in celebrating the wild habitat link. The trekkers agreed to redouble their efforts to protect and strengthen connections between the great parks of Ontario and New York. Photo: John Davis
Wildlands Network is pleased to announce our upcoming new blog series, “Trusting Wildness.”

Two years ago, Wildlands Network convened an Eastern Conservation Summit to set a plan to see eastern wildlands reconnected at a continental scale. Using our successful Western Wildway Network as a model, we began to put together a network of conservationists working at all scales along the Wildway. It has grown and evolved since then into our own Eastern Wildway Network.
Como parte de nuestro trabajo para promover la conectividad a lo largo del tramo de la Carretera Federal 2 que atraviesa las Islas del Cielo coordinamos, en Wildlands Network, un taller introductorio en Ecología de carreteras para lo que pensamos que sería un pequeño grupo de ingenieros de carreteras de Sonora. Estos ingenieros son los hombres y mujeres responsables de construir los caminos que fragmentan el hábitat, introducen especies invasivas y, en resumen, marcan el principio del fin de los lugares salvajes que amamos.

Giving Tuesday, the global celebration of charitable giving, is right around the corner (November 28). This year, our national monuments and public lands are under attack by the Trump Administration, and our critical on-the-ground work within these lands is at risk. Stand with us on Giving Tuesday to keep us moving forward. Photo: Bob Wick, BLM
In this story from northern New York’s Watertown Daily Times, reporter Marcus Wolf covers our own John Davis’s trek along the Algonquin to Adirondack (A2A) connection, which spans across the U.S.-Canada border. John is meeting fellow conservationist John Allport, who is hiking the Canadian side of the A2A connection, in the middle of the trail at Wellesley Island State Park. Photo: John Davis
Wildlands Network’s wildways trekker, John Davis, and conservation friends from the U.S. and Canada are exploring the Algonquin to Adirondack connection on the ground this month, simultaneously hiking northwest and southeast from their respective countries toward the St. Lawrence River, to celebrate the historic journey of Alice the Moose along this trail and investigating the possibility of an eventual A2A International Scenic Trail.

A new letter written by eight internationally-respected scientific experts, published in this month’s Journal of Wildlife Management, directly challenges the information relied on by state and federal wildlife agencies to limit the recovery range for Mexican wolves in the United States. The newly published work provides significant evidence that the draft Mexican wolf recovery plan, released in June, requires revisions to be scientifically credible. Photo: Juan Carlos Bravo
Saturday, September 30th is National Public Lands Day, the nation’s largest volunteer effort for public lands. While most Americans love their public lands, we recognize that many of our beloved parks and monuments fail to fully embrace the history of the cultures that lived and thrived in these places long before Teddy Roosevelt started protecting them. But that’s quickly changing. Photo: U.S. Department of the Interior
During the Summer 2017 solar eclipse, our own John Davis caught up with Congressman Don Beyer on the Appalachian Trail. The Congressman spoke eloquently about the need for the Wildlife Corridors Conservation Act, which would provide better connectivity for both humans and wildlife along footpaths and trails like the AT.

In a leaked report, Interior Secretary Zinke recommends President Trump shrink at least 4 monuments and modify 6 others, opening them up to harmful special interests like mining, logging, commercial fishing and drilling. Join Wildlands Network as we stand against this devastating news and defend our national monuments. Photo: Bob Wick, BLM.
