Free Wilderness Webinars

Toolbox icon
Register for this upcoming webinar on June 7 at noon-1:30pm mountain time--Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) and Wilderness. There has been dramatic growth throughout the United States in the numbers and use of unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) during recent years. Ethical and stewardship concerns about their use in wilderness have emerged. It is still unknown what the full impacts, both positive and negative, are of UAS use to wilderness character and values, staff, and visitors.

Watch the recording from the May 17 Evaluating Proposals for Ecological Intervention in Wilderness Webinar with ecologists Beth Hahn and Peter Landres.
