‘Old Broads’ to celebrate nation’s Wilderness Act

I appreciate your excellent editorial about the 50th anniversary of the Wilderness Act and the need for Congress to pass pending Wilderness designations. It is essential that we set aside portions of our wondrous land to protect it from noise and intrusions and that we leave it as we found it when we do visit.

There will be a celebration of the Wilderness Act 50th Anniversary on Sept. 20 from 2-5 at the Women's Club of Olympia being called “Poetry and Songs for the Wild.” It’s created by the local chapter of Great Old Broads for Wilderness.
