Arthur Carhart National Wilderness Training Center Logo: Wolf howling at moon


We are a group of people committed to the power of the promise of the Wilderness Act and to those within and outside the federal government who strive to keep that promise. There is one National Wilderness Preservation System. There are four agencies that manage it. We believe it makes sense to work across Department and agency boundaries to develop comprehensive, interagency solutions to wilderness stewardship issues that directly meet the needs of the field. If we are not providing quality, meaningful products that support field needs, we shouldn't be drawing salary. Since establishment of the Center in 1993, we have held to these beliefs.
