  • Develop place-based campaigns to highlight and defend a selection of priorities throughout the Eastern Wildway
    Strengthen support for Wildlife Corridor bills
  • Advance strategic discussions on collaboration with outdoor recreation and scenic trail groups
  • Fully incorporate climate mitigation and adaptation as a primary driver of the Eastern Wildway Network
  • Explore opportunities to restore ecosystem function through the reestablishment of top carnivores, such as wolves and cougars
  • Build a more inclusive and diverse collaborative network
