Description of Course Content:_ In this wilderness management course
we will discuss the evolution of wilderness beginning with the early
history and philosophy of the wilderness idea. From that foundation,
we will take a closer look at the Wilderness Act of 1964 and its
significance for management. Finally, we will look at how wilderness
is managed to protect natural processes while providing visitors with
the high-quality recreation opportunities they expect.
