Join Oregon Wild for a slideshow presentation that both celebrates the 50th anniversary
of the Wilderness Act and looks ahead to how we can better protect our natural treasures.
Oregon Wild's Wilderness Coordinator, Erik Fernandez, will explore past protections of places
like the Three Sisters and Mount Hood as well as discuss campaigns to protect Crater
Lake, the Wild Rogue, and others. The presentation will include beautiful photography from
around Oregon as well as note the ecological and recreational values these areas provide.
Join Oregon Wild and several other Wilderness-loving organizations for a Celebration Open House for the Wilderness Act's 50th Anniversary.
The Obsidians will be recognizing volunteers and long-time Wilderness activists, exhibiting wilderness art, and hosting a presentation by author Bill Sullivan. Informational tables will be on hand for Oregon Wild, Sierra Club, the Willamette National Forest, and more.
Music and refreshments round out this fun event for all ages.
