Saturday, July 21— Solitude in the Teton Wilderness: A Stewardship Opportunity — Moderate
The Wilderness Act of 1964 states that Wilderness has “...outstanding opportunities for solitude or a primitive and unconfined type of recreation”. Join us as we partner with Bridger-Teton Wilderness Ranger Chelsea Phillippe on the Teton Wilderness with nothing but the packs on our backs and boots on our feet to experience this thing called solitude, first hand. Along the way enjoy this slice of Wyoming wild country by observing wildlife, soaking up incredible vistas and assisting with an ongoing Forest Service “Solitude Monitoring” project aimed at measuring how well this specific Wilderness characteristic is being upheld. Also, learn about the many other ways Wilderness Rangers across the country are working to maintain our untrammeled landscapes for generations to come and how you can be more involved in their upkeep. Be prepared to hike 5-8 miles with moderate elevation change.
