Happy Birthday Kalmiopsis Wilderness | Home of the Wild Chetco River!

Kalmiopsis Wilderness - Tim Palmer
Today marks the 50th Anniversary of the Kalmiopsis Wilderness!

Congress passed the landmark Wilderness Act on September 3, 1964 to protect areas of America’s unique natural heritage for future generations. The stark and rugged upper watershed of the Chetco River in southwest Oregon was one of the original Wilderness Areas designated in the Act.
