In 1965 "The Wilderness Act was one year old. Americans were beginning to turn more attention to the outdoors and the environment, pressing for laws to protect clean air and water and sparking a decade or more of environmental enlightenment.

"Paul Petzoldt, a legendary mountaineer, had a dream. He wanted to train leaders. He wanted to help people learn to care about and protect the wilderness. Petzoldt saw his dream come to life in Wyoming that year. He called it the National Outdoor Leadership School." [1]
