Strategic Direction and Planning

We provide strategic planning documents for the Institute and the National Wilderness Preservation System. We include the Wilderness Managers Survey since it was used extensively in the development of the 2014 strategic plan for wilderness, 2020 Vision: Interagency Stewardship Priorities for America’s National Wilderness Preservation System and is being used in the development of a new 10 year strategic science plan for the Aldo Leopold Wilderness Research Institute. Our 2008 Charter for the Institute expires in 2018 at which time we will have a new charter in place for the Institute as well as the 10 year strategic plan describing the science needs for all wilderness lands – public and private.
