The Bodie Hills need your help! Learn more about what you can do...

There are three BLM Wilderness Study Areas (WSAs) in the Bodie Hills.

The Bodie Hills is comprised of three main BLM Wilderness Study Areas (WSA's) including the Bodie WSA, the Bodie Mountain WSA, and Mt. Biedeman WSA. These areas provide amazing recreational, cultural and natural values where visitors can enjoy hiking, biking, camping, botanizing, bird watching, hunting and motor touring through aspen-tinged valleys and across high plateaus with vistas of the Sierra Nevada, Mono Lake and the Great Basin.

About Wilderness Study Areas

A Wilderness Study Area, or WSA, is an area of public land that has been inventoried by the Bureau of Land Management and found to have wilderness characteristics. WSAs are protected by law, and often have high ecological, geological, cultural, and scenic values.

Ongoing activities such as grazing, mining of valid claims and off-road vehicle use on existing roads and trails can continue in WSAs pending Congressional action to designate an area as wilderness.

How You Can Help!

Help Save America's Treasured Lands

Urge the supervisors to oppose opening the Bodie Hills and other lands in Mono County and around the nation to development and instead vote to protect Mono County’s and America’s real treasures: its natural areas, beauty, wildlife, clean air, clean water, and outdoor recreation opportunities for future generations.
