Health, Physical Education and Recreation | Wilderness in the American Mind
R385 | 18154 | Joel Meier


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