Within the United States there are many different agencies that have been tasked with the management of America's Public Lands. Due to America's unique inception, there are many different ideas and concepts that affect how we view these same land units today. This poster delves into four specific land units in Washington State (The Pacific Crest National Trail, the Lake Chelan National Recreation Area, The Okanogan-Wenatchee National Forest, and Mount Rainier National Park) to discuss each area's history and management issues, as well as discuss the effects of society's preconceived notions on each destination. Finally, the poster also discusses what ties these lands together - a planned 2-3 week trip that includes all the land units discussed.


This poster was created based on work completed for FYS 120: What Would Smokey Say?, and presented as a part of the eighth annual CAFE Symposium on February 8, 2023.
