Volume 29, Number 2: December 2023


In this issue, Amanda Grace Santos and other emerging land management professionals discuss what diversity, equity, inclusion, and access in wilderness means to them, Brett Quin and Erin Drake share their work advancing wilderness accessibility for people with disabilities, and Kimm Fox-Middleton shares a creative solution towards getting early career land management professionals excited about sharing with and learning from a retiring wilderness workforce. Adrienne Lindholm shares the work of the National Park Service to reimagine a more inclusive wilderness concept using a case study of Glacier Bay National Park, Alaska, and Lauren Redmore and co-authors led an effort to understand what wilderness management professionals would like to see from an interagency toolbox for diversity, equity, and inclusion. This is just a few of the excited contributions in the December double issue.​
