Spotlight On: Common Ground Ad Campaign
Your Wilderness - August 2012
For the past 10 years, the Campaign for America's Wilderness has worked with local coalitions to build grassroots support for wilderness protection. From business owners to real estate agents, and ranchers to sportsmen, people from all backgrounds have come together to work toward ensuring that their favorite wild places will remain as they are for future generations to enjoy.
This diverse group of advocates has been highlighted over the years in our “Common Ground” ads. Although these people come from different regions and backgrounds and use and value the land in myriad ways, they share the commitment to protecting more of the nation's last wild places. As the 112th Congress draws to a close, everyday Americans like these are working with us to get 25 pending wilderness bills enacted into law. This Congress still has a chance to protect 2.3 million acres of wilderness before it adjourns, and we will do all we can to move this legislation. Our work is inspired by the efforts of these tireless supporters. We hope they inspire you as we make the end-of-the-year push to safeguard more wilderness—our common ground.
