Senator Murray and Rep. Kilmer Introduce Wild Olympics Legislation
Senator Patty Murray and Representative Derek Kilmer introduced the Wild Olympics Wilderness and Wild and Scenic Rivers Act of 2014 in the Senate and House of Representatives. This legislation would designate more than 126,000 acres of existing federal land as Wilderness in the Olympic National Forest and designate more than 460 river miles on the Olympic Peninsula as Wild and Scenic. The Wilderness designation permanently protects old growth and ancient forest habitat throughout the region. Read the Wild Olympics Campaign press release.
