Wednesday Wisdom – President Lyndon Johnson

50 years ago today, President Lyndon Baines Johnson signed the Wilderness Act into law, protecting the country’s wildest places for generations to come. The landmark conservation law protects nearly 110 million acres of U.S. wilderness – including 20.6 million acres on national wildlife refuges. Celebrate today by learning more about wilderness and the Wilderness act and seeing how you can join in the festivities!
