On Saturday, people will have a rare chance to see designated wilderness islands in Tamarac
Fifty years ago today, Congress signed the National Wilderness Act, preserving millions of acres of wilderness throughout the United States. Just over 2,000 of the 43,000 acres in Tamarac National Wildlife Refuge are a part of that designation.
“I would encourage people to experience the character of wilderness, take the time to do that. It’s very rejuvenating,” said Tamarac Ranger Kelly Blackledge.
