The Wilderness Act was passed in 1964, signed by President Lyndon B Johnson. This act states, “A wilderness, in contrast with those areas where man and his own works dominate the landscape, is hereby recognized as an area where the earth and its community of life are untrammeled by man, where man himself is a visitor who does not remain.”
Since its passing in 1964 there have been many questions asked: Has there been any measurable or exponential benefits to having designated wilderness areas? Should we leave wilderness alone or is 50 years enough? What is the benefit setting aside wilderness? Is wilderness the same thing as public lands? Come to pizza and politics this Wednesday in the Entertainment Bureau at noon to find the answers to these, and other important questions regarding wilderness.
Tonight is the election watch party for all you political junkies. Come see if Democrats can hold the majority or if Republicans will beat them out in the Senate races!
