  • Wilderness 50th Anniversary Play all

    2014 marks the 50th anniversary of the passage of the Wilderness Act, signed by President Lyndon Johnson on September 3, 1964. This landmark conservation bill created a way to permanently protect some of the most natural and undisturbed places in America. The United States was the first country to define and designate wilderness areas through law. Congress passed the Act to keep certain undeveloped federal lands "untrammeled by man" and to maintain their "primeval" character. To date, the National Wilderness Preservation System, which was created by the Act, includes more than 100 million acres of land across the United States. The BLM is one of four federal agencies that manage wilderness areas on public lands. We are responsible for 221 wilderness areas totaling 8.7 million acres in 10 western states.
