Description: 

Join us for a family friendly, fall day celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Wilderness Act – the landmark environmental law that designated wilderness areas for all to enjoy. Today, America boasts 758 wilderness areas covering nearly 110 million acres. The Forest Service manages nearly 100,000 acres of  wilderness here in Vermont. This free, public event is part of a national celebration of the Wilderness Act and honors Vermont’s tradition of conservation and partnerships.
