Non WSA Lands with Wilderness Characteristics Review Findings

1999 Utah Wilderness Inventory and 2003 Revision
The 1999 Utah Wilderness Inventory was conducted by the Bureau of Land Management between 1996 and 1999 to determine whether certain public lands in Utah possess wilderness characteristics.  As a result of public comment and subsequent internal review of inventory files and field evaluations, adjustments were made to the boundaries of wilderness character areas identified in the 1999 inventory. For information about these adjustments please click on the 2003 Revision.  This process identified 21 areas totaling 488,744 acres as having wilderness characteristics.

During the preparation of this draft RMP, additional analyses of non WSA lands with wilderness characteristics were completed in response to scoping.   All areas were evaluated. Twentyone areas totaling 582,360 acres were found to possess wilderness characteristics.
