Western Resources Advocates

Western Resource Advocates is a regional conservation organization dedicated to protecting the West’s land, air, and water. We work in six states (AZ, CO, NM, NV, UT, WY) to promote a clean energy future, defend public lands and people from the impacts of energy development, and ensure water supplies for communities while protecting rivers and lakes. Each of our programs addresses the global threat of climate change. We have secured commitments to retire some of the West’s dirtiest coal plants and brought large amounts of renewable energy on line, protected more than 2 million acres of public lands, and benefitted rivers such as the Colorado, Green, San Miguel, and Yampa. We are the advocates for the West’s wild places, roaring rivers, blue skies, thriving communities, and future generations.
