We want to consider the places you go on the Forest in our road system analysis. It will be particularly helpful to know what areas and roads you use, as well as what you do there. Open houses are scheduled around the Olympic Peninsula during the summer of 2014, at which you can provide input on maps and questionnaires. View open house dates, times, and locations.

On September 3, 1964 President Lyndon B. Johnson signed into law the Wilderness Act. This historic bill established the National Wilderness Preservation System (NWPS) and set aside an initial 9.1 million acres of wildlands for the use and benefit of the American people.
Over the past 50 years, and as a result of America's support for wilderness, Congress has added over 100 million acres to this unique land preservation system. September 2014 is the 50th anniversary of the Wilderness Act!
