Stewart Brandborg's 2014 speech in celebration of the 50th anniversary of the passage of the 1964 Wilderness Act. The speech was filmed on location at the Wilderness Gateway Campground in Idaho, near the banks of the Wild and Scenic Lochsa River.
"Brandy" was a giant in the wilderness movement, and the last surviving architect of the 1964 Wilderness Act. He joined the board of directors of Wilderness Watch in 1998, where he served with other such wilderness luminaries as Stewart Udall, Orville Freeman, Joe Fontaine, Michael Frome, and Bill Worf. Brandy served on the board, and later as Wilderness Watch’s Senior Advisor, for a 20-year run from 1998 until his final journey in April 2018.
