Deciding to Keep Wilderness Wild: Four Cornerstones for Wilderness Managers

This course is hosted by the Arthur Carhart National Wilderness Training Center.

This course explores the four most important principles of managing wilderness: Preserve Wildness and Natural Conditions, Protect Wilderness Benefits, Provide and Use the Minimum Necessary, and Manage Wilderness as a Whole. The course is designed to stimulate your thought process so that when you are faced with difficult wilderness stewardship issues, you can make well-informed decisions that minimize negative impacts to wilderness character as required by The Wilderness Act of 1964. 

There is one strongly recommended prerequisite for this course, The Wilderness Act of 1964. It is also recommended that you take the Writing a Minimum Requirements Analysis course.
