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

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.
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

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
Rep. Rob Bishop (R-Utah) is calling for a reversal of federal mining bans enacted during the Obama administration to protect Grand Canyon watersheds, national forests in Oregon and other pristine public lands. Public lands at risk include 1 million acres in the greater Grand Canyon region, which safeguards critical regional wildlife corridors and habitat for numerous native species, many of which exist nowhere else on Earth.

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
