Celebrate 50th Anniversary of the Wilderness Act

by Toni Armstrong
Eastern Missouri Group

In September 1964, President Johnson signed into law the Wilderness Act. It was legislation that set aside federal lands for special protection. Join us in 2014 as we celebrate that historic act.

Check in the newsletter, print and on-line, for outings to Missouri's wilderness areas. The on-line newsletter will have a different wilderness area highlighted each month. If you don't receive the e-newsletter, contact the EMG office at or 314-644-0890 to have your name added to the list. Look for a general meeting on the topic of wilderness. If you are in Kirksville in September, be sure to enjoy a photo exhibit celebrating Missouri's wilderness areas.
