2014 marks the 50th anniversary of the Wilderness Act – one of the most significant events in American conservation history.

With this act wild nature was given legal standing – a chance to simply exist, independent of what humans wanted from it.

In a presentation rich with images and dynamic stories, Gary reveals the surprising ways in which the nation’s wildlands have shaped our national sense of identity – and can continue to shape it for generations to come.
