Marielle Cowdin and Chandra LeGue talk about the value of wilderness.

It's a milestone birthday year for wilderness in America and in Oregon. 

The Wilderness Act went on the books in 1964, the same year the Kalmiopsis Wilderness was created. 

Oregon Wild celebrates with the Oregon Wilderness Conference this weekend. 

We visit with group leaders to talk about the impact of wilderness creation.
