Blank Places on Maps - America's Wilderness Legacy
Hosted by Yampatika
America's Wilderness Legacy will be led by a Yampatika naturalist who worked as a Wilderness Ranger in Northern Arizona, Minnesota and California for the US Forest Service. Learn about the uniquely American idea to capture a place and time when we didn't have motors, wheels, or buildings. This history will dive into the creation stories of local Wilderness areas, the Zirkel’s and Flat Tops, such as Theodore Roosevelt's hunting visits, how a German geologist became a namesake, how a simple comment from locals changed our area forever and other fascinating facts.

What to wear: Dress for the weather (current and future) and dress in layers! Many people like to wear long pants/sleeves to protect yourself from the sun, dirt, and things that might make you itchy (mosquitos, etc.). Avoid cotton when you’re able and go with a synthetic material or wool. Also remember to wear sturdy hiking shoes, good socks, a cool sun hat, and sunscreen!
What to bring in your day pack: 2 Water bottles, snacks, sunscreen, extra layers (long sleeve shirt, fleece) and also bring your waterproof jacket- weather changes quickly, make sure to come for cooler/wet weather
