President Obama has proclaimed September National Wilderness Month, in correspondence with the 50th Anniversary of the Wilderness Act. This morning an exhibit opened at Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History featuring photographs of the U.S. Wilderness System. The exhibit is in observance of this month's 50th anniversary of the Wilderness Act, and features touch-screen kiosks with two Esri story maps. Here are the online versions: Wilderness Forever: The Photographs and Wilderness Forever: Wilderness in Context. Also see #Wilderness50.

 

It is also pretty amazing to see how far Story Maps have come in such a short time. Could you imagine having to make a poster and use it to create this kind of awareness?
