1999 Utah Wilderness Inventory and 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 Revisions to the 1999 Utah Wilderness Inventory.
