50th Wilderness Anniversary Celebration
2014 was a special year for the history of conservation. For the Forest it was the year we celebrated the 50th Anniversary of the National Wilderness Act and for the Bridger-Teton National Forest, we also celebrated the 30th Anniversary of the Wyoming Wilderness Act.
These anniversaries carry particular meaning to the Bridger-Teton since we have two of the original areas included in the National Wilderness Preservation System. The Wyoming Wilderness Act, passed in 1984, added new areas and significantly expanded the acreage of existing areas on the Bridger-Teton so that today, we have five areas of Congressional Wilderness or Wilderness Study Areas totaling 1.4 million acres (42% of the Forest).
We are thankful for those that contributed in the execution of such a great celebration. A lot of partners and volunteers helped educating the public in the importance of conservation and public lands. The Bridger-Teton 50th Anniversary report covers some of the great work everyone did to make 2014 the year of wilderness.
