Perspectives on the Value of Wilderness

What: Join the US Forest Service for the final installment of a three-part series of events celebrating the 40th Anniversary of the Wilderness Act and the 20th Anniversary of the Utah Wilderness Act.

Alexis Kelner, local historian and author of the backcountry ski book series, “Wasatch Tours,” and Dick Carter, founder of the High Uintas Preservation Council were key players as citizen activists in the passage of the 1984 Act.
