Wilderness: The Last Stand is a powerful, investigative look at the status of America's last remaining virgin forests. It examines the impact of U.S. Forest Service (USFS) policies, vividly documenting the continuing harm caused by clearcutting. Compelling and beautifully shot, the video presents a wide range of opinions through interviews with conservationists, loggers, Vice-President Al Gore, USFS, and former agency employees who are organizing to change USFS logging policies.

Narrated by Susan Sarandon. Study guide includes ideas for science, social studies and English teachers.
