Square State Film and the Wyoming Wilderness Association
An increasing love for motorized and mechanized recreation has created a wave of opposition to the Wilderness Act of 1964. As this conflict spreads across the west and around the globe, The Palisades Project uses a little known landscape located in Wyoming to expose this issue and inspire opposing sides towards a solution.
