“It is our view that the range of recreation opportunities currently offered in the National Wilderness Preservation System (NWPS) is incomplete. Specifically, we believe opportunities are lacking at the primitive end.”

“Users are all too aware that should they become injured, ill, lost, or declared overdue, the managing agency stands ready to rescue them...“

Slide5

“People who risk nothing simply cannot learn, feel, change, grow, love, live. Chained by certitudes, they have forfeited their freedom. Only a person who risks is free.”

“It is not up to taxpayers to absorb rescue costs, it is up to us, as a nation, to accept wilderness for what it is—a place where we assume

responsibility for ourselves as an act of respect for ourselves.”

Slide6

“Visitors may come to rely on these devices in the wilderness instead of developing appropriate knowledge, abilities, experience, and skills.”

“Between 1992 and 2007, the NPS responded to 65,439search and rescue incidents…common causes for these search and rescue incidents were judgmenterrors (22.3%); lack of physical preparation/fatigue (16.8%); insufficient equipment, clothing, or experience

(15.6%); falls (8.9%); and weather (7.4%).

BWCAW Wilderness Character Mapping Project: Threats

Solitude or primitive and unconfined recreation quality

Indicator: Remoteness from sights and sounds of people inside the wilderness Measure - Administrative motorized noise inside wilderness Measure - Campsite noise inside wilderness

Indicator: Facilities that decrease self-reliant recreation Measure: Wireless coverage

Superior National Forest Plan:

[Wilderness] Serves as a haven of solitude and freedom from the pressures of our fast-paced, industrialized society.

Visitors will experience freedom, challenge, and risk.
