January 30, 2018View for printing

The Wilderness Institute at the University of Montana invites UM students and the public to the annual Wilderness Issues Lecture Series, held at 7 p.m. each Tuesday of spring semester in Gallagher Business Building Room 123. The series begins Jan. 30.

This year's series, "The Rivers Will Run," celebrates the 50th anniversary of the National Wild and Scenic Rivers Act, passed by Congress in 1968 to protect free-flowing, undammed portions of rivers across the U.S.

The lectures will feature perspectives from scholars, writers, photographers, activists, recreationists, policy experts and managers. Each will discuss the implications of the Wild and Scenic Rivers Act in the U.S. and abroad.
