Wilderness Week

This year's celebration of The Wilderness Act's golden anniversary will include a Washington, D.C.-based Wilderness Week on September 15-17, 2014. Activities will include: an activist gathering to honor our history and discuss the next 50 years of wilderness protection; meetings with congressional leaders; a celebration event and after-hours tour of the Wilderness Forever photography exhibit at the Smithsonian's National History Museum; a lecture by leading American environmental historian William Cronon; and much more.


We are looking forward to participation by advocates from across the nation and hope to see you in September! If you have any questions, please contact a member of the planning team: Andrew Pike (apike@pewtrusts.org), Matt Kirby (matthew.kirby@sierraclub.org), and Nicole Layman (nicole_layman@tws.org).
