This is the second year the two have partnered to highlight some of the last, best wild places in the U.S. with an emphasis on areas that do not have protection from development.
"This unique landscape consists of the largest unprotected roadless area in the Lower 48. Home to mule deer, white-tail deer, elk, moose, black bears, wolves and the occasional grizzly, the area is a hunter’s paradise. Anglers, too, can escape into the Clearwater backcountry to chase trophy west slope cutthroat trout and see some of the Northwest’s healthiest spawning habitat for steelhead and salmon. TU is working through a collaboration of interests to find the best way to protect the Clearwater while still allowing ample opportunity for off-road enthusiasts, timber management and, of course, hunting and fishing."
