In wild places there is incredible natural beauty and also an opportunity for personal reflection, inspiration, and growth. Learn about the landscapes and ideals of the 1964 Wilderness Act in this first vide and then watch our America's Wilderness series to take a delightful immersive journey through America's wild places. Experience National Park Service Wilderness from a variety of perspectives, ranging from students on their first overnight camping trip to musicians composing songs inspired by the natural landscape. Together, these short stories celebrate the range and richness of an American Wilderness experience.
It's the 50th Anniversary of the Wilderness Act! Join us in celebrating the beauty and the value of America's wild places. A first of its kind, this web series was born out of a unique partnership between the NPS Harper's Ferry Center, the NPS Wilderness Stewardship Division, and the Center for Environmental Filmmaking at American University, which created a fellowship program that connects select graduate students studying film and media to a variety of NPS-wide initiatives.
