Featured Maps! Wilderness Areas

Theme for the week: Wilderness Areas

Date: August 5-23, 2019

Wilderness Areas are designated federal lands appointed by Congress. Their main objective is to reserve areas in which nature can prosper without any disturbance. The Wilderness Act of 1964 paved the way for this to occur. Now the USDA Forest service enforces certain regulations that promote:

  • the preservation of high-quality wilderness
  • opportunities for public use, enjoyment and understanding
  • the protection of threatened or endangered native animals and plants
  • contamination-free lakes and streams

Because in these areas human use and entertainment is secondary, there are rules visitors should follow for the protection of the ecosystem. Depending on which of the 149 Californian wilderness areas you visit, you may need to obtain a permit to enter, stay overnight, use a stove-top, create a campfire, hunt or fish. No motorized vehicles are permitted, except for wheelchairs. All travel is done by foot or horseback.

For this feature our Map Collection room will be displaying various maps of different wilderness areas, each reporting important information about regulations, permits, and trails. In addition, it is always a good strategy to contact the local forest service station to become informed, and prepared, on how to plan the best trip possible.
