Wild South inspires people to enjoy, value and protect the wild character and natural legacy of the South.
Working from Mississippi to Virginia, we protect wild places and wild things. With satellite offices in Moulton, AL, Chattanooga, TN and Cowee, NC, we proudly call Asheville our headquarters and love our community!
Our Vision...People of all ages enjoy, appreciate and take responsibility for the care of our public lands now and for future generations. Our Southern national forests and parks are treasured places with clean water and air, abundant and varied wildlife, and functioning natural processes. They are connected to and enrich our quality of life and the social, economic, and cultural wealth of our communities. Wild South is recognized as a leading protector of our Southern public lands and biodiversity.
Our Values...We value the natural world and its role in our human communities, science-based advocacy, transparency and operating with integrity, a diversity of opinions and creative problem solving in decision-making, and a respectful worldview.
