"50 Years of Wilderness" Photo Contest

In 2014, our nation is celebrating “50 Years of Wilderness”. On September 3, 1964 President Lyndon B. Johnson signed into law the Wilderness Act. This bill established the National Wilderness Preservation System and set aside millions of acres of wildlands for the use and benefit of the American people. The Washington Wilderness Act of 1988 further designated thousands of acres of land as wilderness, including the majority of Mount Rainier National Park is designated as a wilderness area.

In honor of the 50th Anniversary of the Wilderness Act, Mount Rainier National Park invites photographers to enter its 2014 Digital Photo Contest. To learn more about the contest, please visit our Flickr group at
