50 years ago, on September 3, 1964, the United States penned the Wilderness Act creating not only a new category of public lands, but also opened a new cultural paradigm for our relationship to the land. Join us on the eve of the Wilderness Act’s 50th anniversary to celebrate wildness. Over the course of its 50 years the Wilderness Act has designated nearly 110 million acres as wild. Iowa does not have a single acre of federally designated Wilderness. Why? Does this mean we have no wildness in Iowa? This question leads us to examine just what is wilderness. Further, do we need wilderness – what is its value? Can we find wildness in Iowa? What is the future of wilderness and what role do we have in this future? Join us as we explore your answers to these and other questions.
