Title: Developing wilderness character monitoring: A personal reflection
Author: Landres, Peter;

Publication Series: Miscellaneous Publication
Description: The 1964 U.S. Wilderness Act has one, clear mandate to the agencies that manage wilderness: preserve the wilderness character of the area. But even though the Wilderness Act went into effect 42 years ago, and all four federal agencies that manage wilderness have policies that direct managers to preserve wilderness character, the agencies can't show whether they are preserving wilderness character or not.
Keywords: wilderness, monitoring, Wilderness Act of 1964
