|A Celebration of Wilderness|
The Virginia Wilderness Committee, Wild Virginia, and the George Washington & Jefferson National Forests of the U.S. Forest Service are very proud to host two events in “Celebration of Wilderness”. The two evenings in September 2012 are designed to raise public awareness of, and interest in, Wilderness in Virginia. Each of these events will focus on Wilderness and the National Wilderness Preservation System as we approach the 50th anniversary of the Wilderness Act in 2014. The events will take place:
Thursday, September 13, 2012, 6:30 –
8:30 pm at the Lyric
Theatre in Blacksburg, VA
Each event features two speakers –
local nature writer Chris Bolgiano ( Biography info.),
The Event Poster (download a .pdf printable version) (shown below) is viewable, as are the Press Release and Public Service Announcement. Please join us for fun, informative evenings with some audience participation.
