Wild Olympics for Our Future

Wild Olympics Campaign Video highlighting the community effort and broad local public support for new Wilderness and Wild & Scenic Rivers on Washington's Olympic Peninsula. The video showcases the special places, stunning scenery, ancient forests and free-flowing rivers that would be protected under Senator Patty Murray and Representative Norm Dicks' landmark "Wild Olympics Wilderness and Wild & Scenic Rivers Act." It highlights local voices and the diverse economic, conservation and recreation benefits the proposal would bring to the Olympic Peninsula and Puget Sound region.

Welcome to The Wild Olympics Campaign!

Protecting our Ancient Forests and Rivers for Future Generations

On June 21, 2012, Senator Patty Murray and Congressman Norm Dicks introduced historic legislation to establish new Wilderness and Wild and Scenic River protections on the Olympic Peninsula. If passed, the bill would protect the first new Wilderness designations (more than 126,000 acres ) on Olympic National Forest in nearly 30 years and the first ever Wild and Scenic River designations (for 19 rivers and their tributaries constituting 464 miles of river) on the Olympic Peninsula.

The Wild Olympics Campaign is thrilled with this news and we enthusiastically support the Wild Olympics Wilderness & Wild and Scenic Rivers Act of 2012, introduced in the U.S. House and Senate and will continue to work to advocate for permanent protection of these wild places for future generations. The legislation would provide durable, permanent safeguards for the Peninsula's most priceless natural treasures; our towering ancient forests, free-flowing rivers, critical fish and wildlife habitat and our clean water. We are incredibly grateful for Congressman Dicks and Senator Murray's steadfast leadership and tireless efforts in advancing this landmark legislation. It is truly a historic giant step in the long history of Olympic Peninsula conservation.

Peninsula residents support protecting our last remaining wild forest and rivers. A recently released bipartisan poll found overwhelming support for the Wild Olympics proposal among likely voters in Washington's 6th Congressional District. Nearly two out of three (64 percent) likely voters support the Wild Olympics plan proposed by Rep. Dicks and Sen. Murray. Twenty percent of the district voters polled said they were undecided. Only 15 percent are opposed.

Over the past three years, Wild Olympics has been reaching out to Peninsula communities to build support from diverse local voices, listen to concerns and get feedback on our draft proposal. More than 5000 Peninsula residents have written letters or signed our petition, and nearly 200 Peninsula businesses, farms, faith leaders, hunting and fishing groups, elected officials, conservation and civic groups support Wild Olympics. We will continue this outreach as this legislation makes its way through congress.

We invite you to give us your feedback in the comments section and sign our online petition.

WILD OLYMPICS CAMPAIGN HAILS BILL TO PROTECT PENINSULA’S ANCIENT FORESTS & RIVERS

QUILCENE, WA - A broad and diverse coalition of Olympic Peninsula community members cheered the introduction today of the Wild Olympics Wilderness & Wild and Scenic Rivers Act of 2014 by Representative Derek Kilmer and Senator Patty Murray.  The measure, similar to that introduced in the last Congress, by Senator Murray and former Congressman Norm Dicks would permanently protect more than 126,000 acres of ancient and mature forests on Olympic National Forest as wilderness and 19 Olympic Peninsula rivers and their major tributaries as Wild and Scenic.

New Study of Wild Olympics Shows No Impact to Timber Jobs

QUILCENE, WA – Stewardship Forestry, an independent forestry consultant, released a study today on the impact of the Wild Olympics Wilderness and Wild and Scenic Rivers Act (H.R. 5995/ S.3329) on the Olympic National Forest (ONF) timber supply. The question of what that impact would be and what affect it might have on timber jobs has been much debated as the Wild Olympics proposal has been significantly modified over the past three years.
