  • Slide 8 - History History: The Evolving Wilderness Leading scholars will tell inspiring stories of how the wilderness concept evolved. Sessions will discuss the landscape and social changes that led to the wilderness movement, and the ideas and ideals, the hopes and fears and concerns for the future that motivated the framers of the Wilderness Act. But history too evolves, and sessions will explore diverse interpretations related to our wilderness frontier cultural heritage and its role in shaping our national character and identity.
  • Slide 9 - Education Education: Preparing Tomorrow's Stewards To succeed, wilderness management must work to prevent social and physical impacts, prepare future stewards, raise public awareness and cultivate and involve more diverse constituents in support of wilderness. Sessions in this track offer field-tested information for wilderness education program development, implementation, evaluation, and fundraising strategies in difficult economic times. Real-life education success stories will be offered as a foundation for building new or enhancing existing wilderness education programs.
  • Slide 10 - Experience Experience: The Value of Diverse Perspectives This track will provide a forum for those who participate in, study, or manage recreation in wilderness. Whether visitors come for the challenge of an arduous trek or just to be in a world apart from the distractions of modern civilization, they arrive with motivations, perspectives, and behaviors that need to be better understood if the full range of experiential benefits is to be provided while protecting wilderness resources. As well, sessions will include the existence and symbolic values experienced by millions who will never set foot in Wilderness.
  • Slide 11 - Civic Engagement Civic Engagement: Preservation is Only the Beginning Our nation's decision-making on wilderness involves public participation at its very heart, from wilderness establishment to debate on management in challenging economic and climate-stressed times. Congressional staff, environmental professionals, under-served community leaders, and agency personnel will discuss the new age of civic engagement in preserving and managing our nation's wilderness heritage, as well as the changing demographics of the wilderness constituency in an era governed by social media. Sessions will focus on innovations and traditions of activism through individual volunteerism, organizational involvement, and electoral participation.
  • Slide 12 - Science Science for Wilderness; Wilderness for Science Sessions in this track include topics from both the ecological and social sciences. Presentations will describe ecosystem services provided by wilderness, and its value as a natural laboratory, lending insights into how the natural world functions when left wild, and how it responds to large-scale, human-caused influences, such as global climate change. Presentations will examine research findings that enable better stewardship-from new understandings of how wilderness can be protected to how visitor experiences and behaviors can be affected by various management approaches.
