Wilderness Areas

The BLM manages nine Wilderness Areas in Oregon (nearly 255,000 acres) and one Wilderness Area in Washington (over 7,100 acres). Wilderness Areas are designated by Congress. The Wilderness Act of 1964 defines wilderness as “an area ... which (1) generally appears to have been affected primarily by the forces of nature ...; (2) has outstanding opportunities for solitude or a primitive and unconfined  type of recreation; (3) has at least five thousand acres of land...; and (4) may also contain ecological, geological, or other features of scientific, educational, scenic, or historical value.
