The Wild Olympics in Washington provide outstanding outdoor experiences. From high peaks to deep river valleys harboring old-growth forests, the Wild Olympics is a world-class destination.
The Wild Olympics Wilderness & Wild and Scenic Rivers Act (S.483 and H.B.1285) was introduced by Senator Patty Murray and Representative Derek Kilmer and will permanently protect more than 126,500 acres of Olympic National Forest as wilderness and 19 rivers and their major tributaries, a total of 464 river miles, as Wild and Scenic Rivers.
Designed through extensive community input to protect ancient forests, clean water, and enhance outdoor recreation, the legislation would, if enacted, designate the first new wilderness on Olympic National Forest in nearly three decades and the first-ever protected wild and scenic rivers on the Olympic Peninsula.
