Meets with GEOG 5380. Graduate students should enroll in GEOG 5380 and will be held to higher standards and/or more work. The course explores the concept of wilderness we have today, including the ethical, socio-political, and scientific forces that continue to shape that concept and fuel the ongoing debate in the western U.S. and particularly in Utah. Wilderness legislation, federal agency mandates, designation, and resource planning and management tools are all discussed in the context of the National Wilderness Preservation.
