Voices for the West — The Gila and Beyond: Wilderness Designation at 100 Years
In the summer of 1922, Aldo Leopold traveled on horseback up into the headwaters of New Mexico’s Gila River and proposed to his bosses at the Forest Service that 500,000 acres of that rough country would be set aside as roadless wilderness. Thus was born America’s—and the world’s—first designated wilderness. A century later, writer-activists come together to celebrate this vast, rugged landscape and argue for its preservation in the anthology First & Wildest: The Gila Wilderness at 100.

Join our next Voices for the West webinar for a conversation with Elizabeth Hightower Allen, Editor of First & Wildest, to discuss the story behind the anthology. We'll also discuss why the Greater Gila is America's next great protected landscape with Madeleine Carey, WildEarth Guardians' Southwest Conservation Manager, and approaches to protection elsewhere in the West with Advocates for the West Senior Attorney Todd Tucci.
