Wild Threats

Current and proposed federal wilderness areas regularly face threats by irresponsible development, and proposals to use our public land as a dumping ground for trash, infrastructure, mining, logging and inappropriate vehicle use. Here are some of our current challenges...

San Diego Gas and Electric Company's Proposed 500,000 volt, 150-mile Electic Transmission Line

SDG&E proposes transmission line & facility upgrades in San Diego & Imperial Counties. The Project would span a total of 150 miles (676 new towers), including a 91-mile, 500-kilovolt (kV) transmission line (in Imperial County & eastern San Diego County) and a new 59-mile, 230 kV line (in central and western San Diego County) that includes both overhead and underground segments. It would also include a new substation in central SD County & upgrades at 4 existing substations.

This power line is NOT NEEDED. It does not belong in Anza-Borrego Desert State Park, The Cleveland National Forest, Los Penasquitos Canyon Preserve, Santa Ysabel, Ramona -- it does not belong ANYWHERE!

Blackwater USA's Proposed Mercenary Soldier Training Facility in the Heart of the Proposed Hauser Wilderness Additions

This massive land use proposal near Portrero on Hiway 94 threatens a core focus area for habitat conservation which has been the subject of significant wilderness and wild & scenic river advocacy, bi-national habitat protection initiatives, as well as hundreds of acres of conservation acquisition work by half a dozen land conservancies.

Wilderness4All looks forward to participating in the pending EIR review of the Blackwater USA proposal, and anticipates the review will properly identify substantial unmitigable impacts to the surrounding public lands resources.
