University of Montana Mansfield Center to Celebrate 50th Anniversary of Wilderness Act
When the U.S. Congress passed the Wilderness Act in 1964, it created a legal and ethical imperative to preserve wilderness as a public good. Now, 50 years later, the Maureen and Mike Mansfield Center at the University of Montana will host a conference that celebrates the work done to fulfill that imperative and that considers the future challenges and controversies facing wilderness.
