PRESIDENT LYNDON B. JOHNSON SIGNED THE FEDERAL WILDERNESS ACT INTO LAW ON SEPT. 3, 1964, SAYING, “If future generations are to remember us with gratitude rather than contempt, we must leave them a glimpse of the world as it was in the beginning, not just after we got through with it.” Initially preserving 9.1 million acres of wilderness in 13 states, the act now protects 110 million acres in 44 states and Puerto Rico, including 3.7 million acres in 43 Colorado wilderness areas. Denver Public Library will exhibit The Legacy of Wilderness: Celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the Wilderness Act, featuring works of John Fielder through Oct. 1, and Ansel Adams, Oct. 3-Nov. 2.
