Forty Years Of The Wilderness Act
"Forty years ago, the United States did something that no nation had ever done before. With the passage of the Wilderness Act on Sept. 3, 1964, the U.S. made the decision to preserve some of the countrys wild places in perpetuity, to create areas in which development would not be allowed...Nationwide, nine million acres were declared wilderness almost immediately. Since then, Congress has added to that portfolio, which now totals 106 million acres... is the 40th birthday of this historic piece of legislation relevant to us now?"
