Celebrating 50 Years of American Wilderness

Emily Lande, Sept. 18, 2014

On September 3rd we celebrated the 50th Anniversary of the passage of the Wilderness Act and this week, folks in DC are continuing that celebration in the only
way we know how: by asking members of Congress to continue to put this legislation to work. 
Wilderness designation is the pinnacle of landscape conservation; it provides protection into perpetuity. There are still countless landscapes, where wildlife live and thrive, that are under constant attack by those who
would rather develop than hunt, fish, hike, or recreate on these largely untouched tracts of lands.
The best way to celebrate this significant anniversary and demonstrate to your elected officials how much you care about protecting America’s wilderness is to get
outside and enjoy it! Here are some of our favorite places, found all across the country, where you can do just that. What is your wilderness wonderland?

“You can preserve stuff and develop stuff at the same time,” Rep. Rob Bishop of Utah, Standard Examiner, Aug. 26, 2013.

The quote could serve as an epigraph for a recent report by the American Petroleum Institute. Bishop was discussinga standoff in his state between people who want more energy production on federal lands and those who want to conserve the lands.
