SEC. 2. FINDINGS.

    The Congress finds and declares the following:
            (1) The publicly owned lands and rivers of California are a 
        wildland resource of extraordinary value for this and future 
        generations.
            (2) Increasing pressure from California's rapidly growing 
        population threatens to irrevocably harm these remaining wild 
        areas and wild rivers.
            (3) Statutory protection is needed for these areas to 
        ensure that they remain a part of our natural heritage and 
        continue to be a source of solitude and inspiration for all 
        Americans.
            (4) Continuation of military activities, including 
        overflights, military maneuvers, testing and evaluation, and 
        other activities without limit to frequency is not incompatible 
        with the protection and proper management of the wilderness and 
        wild and scenic river resources designated by this Act.
            (5) Wildfire management activities necessary to protect 
        public health and safety and private property are fully 
        allowable in wilderness areas and the Secretary may take any 
        measures deemed necessary to control or prevent fires.
            (6) These lands shall be included in the National 
        Wilderness Preservation System and the National Wild and Scenic 
        Rivers System, in order to--
                    (A) preserve the unique wild and natural features 
                of these landscapes;
                    (B) protect a diverse array of ecosystems, plants, 
                animals, geologic structures and hydrologic features 
                that represent the natural splendor of California;
                    (C) protect and preserve historical and cultural 
                archeological sites associated with ancient Indian 
                cultures and the settlement of California;
                    (D) protect and preserve areas that continue to be 
                used by Native American tribes for spiritual, cultural, 
                or subsistence practices;
                    (E) protect watersheds, including those that play 
                an essential role in providing municipal and 
                agricultural water supplies;
                    (F) provide opportunities for compatible outdoor 
                recreation, including horseback riding on saddle and 
                pack stock, hunting and fishing, hiking and camping, 
                whitewater rafting, and excursions led by commercial 
                outfitters;
                    (G) retain and enhance opportunities for scientific 
                research in pristine ecosystems; and
                    (H) promote the recovery of threatened and 
                endangered species, including salmon and steelhead.

Secretary shall file a map and a legal description of each wilderness 
area designated in this title with the Committee on Energy and Natural 
Resources of the Senate and the Committee on Resources of the House of

effect as if included in this title, except that the correction of 
clerical and typographical errors in such legal description may be 
made. Copies of such map and legal description shall be on file and 
available for public inspection in the office of the Secretary with

whether the authority to take whatever appropriate actions are 
necessary for fire management shall be delegated to the Forest 
Supervisor or the Bureau of Land Management District Manager or a field
