Celebrating 50 years of American Wilderness

In 2014, our nation celebrated "50 Years of Wilderness." On September 3, 1964, President Lyndon B. Johnson signed into law the Wilderness Act. The act defines "Wilderness" as areas where the earth and its communities of life are left unchanged by people, where the primary forces of nature are in control, and where people themselves are visitors who do not remain. A national website has been dedicated to the 50th anniversary of the Wilderness Act signing, www.wilderness50th.org.
