Wilderness Act Forum

[portfolio_slideshow id=1082]



History 4, 2014 features a special forum dedicated to the 50th anniversary of the Wilderness Act, which was signed into legislation by President Lyndon B. Johnson on September 3, 1964 (pictured above). Environmental History has opened up this online forum which will run through October 2014. We welcome all our readers to join in the conversation, which will be initiated by seven specially invited discussants. In the menu on the right, you can find more information about the forum essays, the invited discussants, and also a selection of wilderness-themed articles from the Environmental History archives.
