Protect, preserve, and restore the wilderness qualities and biodiversity of the public lands within California's northern Santa Lucia Mountains and Big Sur coast. Founded in 1998, the Ventana Wilderness Alliance (VWA) is a California nonprofit corporation. It is dedicated to protecting the wildlands of California's northern Santa Lucia mountain range. VWA is composed of people from all walks of life who share a love of Wilderness and a goal to ensure it remains wild in perpetuity.

In 1998, members of the Pajaro Valley community agreed to come together in an attempt to move beyond the conflict and lack of coordination among the various interests in the region. A diverse group of residents, including business, agricultural, environmental, local government, labor, education, health, and others formed Action Pajaro Valley (APV), a non-profit organization, in 1999.
