Wilderness in America: A History of America and the Land from Conquest to Conservation

September 30, 2015 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Free

A Fulcrum Film Screening

America has a conservation legacy unmatched anywhere in the world. Almost 30 percent of the land in the United States—National Parks, National Forests, wild rivers, wilderness and other lands—are owned by the people of the United States. This film tells the story of four centuries of American history and describes a changing view of the land by a number of leaders, writers, artists, photographers, teachers, and organizations. (Watch a trailer.)

Offered by the Arnold Arboretum and the Massachusetts Historical Society
