Paradise preserved.

10 places saved

Our 2007 Environmental Awards celebrate 10 amazing success stories: public-private partnerships preserving vast stretches of wildlife-filled tundras, rain forests, canyons, grasslands, and rivers throughout the West. Our picks include major additions to the Alaska Peninsula National Wildlife Refuge, 275,000 acres of wilderness in Mendocino County, and the botanical wonderland of Hawaii's Waimea Valley. Many of these new preserves are already open for hiking, fishing (like Montana's Madison River, pictured), or simply blissing out in nature.
