Dolack's Wilderness Act poster

Artist Monte Dolack created a new poster to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Wilderness Act.

When the U.S. Congress passed the Wilderness Act in 1964, it created a legal and ethical imperative to preserve wilderness as a public good. Now, 50 years later, the Maureen and Mike Mansfield Center at the University of Montana will host a conference that celebrates the work done to fulfill that imperative and that considers the future challenges and controversies facing wilderness.

The 2014 Fall Mansfield Conference, titled “The Storied Past, the Troubled Future: The Imperative of Wilderness at 50 Years,” will be held Wednesday through Friday, Sept. 10-12, at the University of Montana.
