The Alpine Lakes Protection Society of Washington was a citizens' conservation organization. Founded in 1968, it promoted congressional enactment of a national recreation area in the Cascade Mountains of north central Washington. It had chapters in Seattle, Wenatchee, Ellensburg, and briefly in Yakima. Besides seeking statutory protection for the area, the Alpine Lakes Protection Society of Washington worked to forestall extractive uses likely to affect the wilderness quality of the Alpine Lakes region. In June 1976 Congress passed the Alpine Lakes Management Act of 1976, which established the Alpine Lakes Wilderness.
The records are open to all users.
