Glacier Superintendent: Designate Park as a Wilderness
HELENA – The superintendent of Glacier National Park says the park should be formally designated as a wilderness area where new roads and other development would be prohibited.......

I don't think it tells the whole story, since there's no way that an entire national park could be declared as a wilderness area. The existing roads and buildings would be considered a "nonconforming use". The average person probably wouldn't understand from the article that they're likely proposing that most of the park land be designated wilderness.

I do find it interesting that there is zero designated wilderness at Yellowstone NP, Grand Teton NP, or Grand Canyon NP.
