Deam Wildeerness

Before the nearly 13,000-acre Deam Wilderness was established, preservationists worried it was too small and at risk of being loved to death. The Deam is located within a three-hour drive of more than 5 million people in Indianapolis, Louisville, Cincinnati, and Evansville. Pending legislation in Congress would more than double the Deam’s size and add another 29,000 acres of nearby, protected wildlands in a new Benjamin Harrison National Recreation Area.
