The exhibit, sponsored by VINS and the Sierra Club, features Vermont and New Hampshire wilderness areas and other outdoor scenes. It is part of a nationwide celebration of the Wilderness Act, which created the National Wilderness Preservation System that now protects nearly 110 million acres of wilderness areas across the country.
