Abstract:

The Wilderness Act of 1964 established a National Wilderness Preservation System, and this publication is a compilation of selected information about every wilderness within this System. For each wilderness, the following information is given: legally correct wilderness name; public law that established the wilderness; date the enabling law was signed by the President; acreage designated in the enabling public law; modifying public law or laws that affected the name, boundary, or administration; current total acreage reported by the administering agency, the agency or agencies with current administrative authority; administering unit or units within the agency; State or States in which the wilderness is located. This information is arranged in nine different tables, each arranged and sorted in different ways to allow the reader to easily find desired information. In addition to this publication, this information is also available on the World Wide Web site http://www.wilderness.net/nwps in a relational database that can be queried. Sources for all information included here are described, and exceptions and special cases are discussed. All the information included in this database has been verified by wilderness specialists within each of the four agencies with responsibility for managing wilderness. Based on the data in this publication, various trends in wilderness from 1964 through 1999 are described, including the total number of wildernesses, acres of wilderness, agency administration, size of individual wildernesses, and State distribution. An appendix of all public laws establishing or modifying wilderness is included. For each public law, the following information is also given: the States affected by that law, the management agencies designated by that law, the number of wilderness study areas designated (if any), and whether special provisions were included in that law.
