Executive Director of the Friends of Allegheny Wilderness
"Friends of Allegheny Wilderness seeks to foster an appreciation of wilderness values and benefits, and to work with local communities to ensure that increased wilderness protection is a priority of the stewardship of the Allegheny National Forest."
The Allegheny National Forest is significantly underrepresented in terms of acreage allocated to America's National Wilderness Preservation System under the Wilderness Act of 1964. At less than two percent of it's land protected as wilderness, the Allegheny lags behind the national average of 18 percent for all national forest land.
